Former Vice President Joe Biden has consistently led in the polls and received some sharp challenges from some of the other candidates at Thursday's debate.

Last night in Texas, the country got to see the 10 top Democratic candidates for president share the debate stage for the first time. They discussed health care, guns, and even fielded a few questions about foreign policy.

Edward-Isaac Dovere is a staff writer at The Atlantic and was in Houston to watch the candidates square off. He joined Diane to talk about the generational, ideological, and tactical tensions on display at the third Democratic Primary debate.
