Top moments from the Democratic debate in Wisconsin

Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger made an appearance – at  least in spirit – at Thursday’s Democratic debate when Hillary Clinton named him as one  of  her influences in foreign policy matters, and Sen. Bernie Sanders said he was fine  with the fact that Kissinger  wasn’t a friend.

In the two-hour debate from Wisconsin, Sanders and Clinton spared over the issues of  immigrant children, who supported Barack  Obama’s presidency more and the role of Super PACS in campaigns.

Here are a few of the more memorable moments from the debate

Whose PAC is it anyway?

In explaining that taking money from Wall Street did not mean you are beholden to them, Clinton said President Obama "got the largest number of Wall Street donations. When it mattered he stood up and took on Wall Street." "Let's not insult the intelligence of the American people,” Sanders countered. “People aren't dumb."

Defending Madeleine

Clinton defended former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright's comment that "there's a special place in Hell for women who don't help other women," saying that while women have come a long way, there are still "some barriers to knock down."

“Well, look," Clinton said. "I think that she’s been saying that for as long as I’ve known her."

Not so fast, my friend

Clinton described what she intended to do about big government once she took office, and that was when Sanders interrupted with this line.

Calling  hypocrisy

Sanders went after the Republicans for their stance on abortion, saying the GOP was for smaller government until it came time for a woman to make a choice about an abortion, then the government wants to be involved, he said. “If that's not hypocrisy, I don't know what hypocrisy is.

Finally, someone is  talking about the problems of white people

After talking about issues in the black and Hispanic communities, Clinton was asked about problems in white communities.

When children are the message

Sanders called Clinton out for advocating the return of the children who poured across the southern border  in 2014. Clinton said she did so because she wanted to "send a message to families and communities" not to send their children on dangerous journeys to America. Sanders countered, “Who are you sending the message to? … Don't use children to send a political message. Welcome them and care for these children.”

Clinton admires Henry Kissinger for his foreign policy experience. Sanders does not. A  lot.

Who supports President Obama more?

As the two clashed on their level of support for President Obama, Clinton, in particular, slammed Sanders for criticizing the president in a book blurb. Sanders countered, "Pres. Obama and I are friends...it is really unfair to suggest that I have not been supportive of him." After another exchange, Sanders drove the point home, saying he wasn’t the one who challenged  the president for his office in 2012.

From Feb. 15-29, people in the area can donate things from an old relationship to others at a Sarasotaarea Goodwill.

"Certainly we’re having a little fun at the expense of Valentine’s Day, but the benefits derived from those seeking the pride of earning a paycheck, and the self-worth that comes with self-sufficiency, are priceless," Goodwill Manasota Foundation Vice President Veronica Brandon Miller said in a press release Feb. 3. "We wish those in happy relationships a very happy Valentine’s Day and encourage everyone else to clean out their closets, donate to Goodwill and start fresh."

Although the campaign is hosted by the Sarasota chapter and the Goodwill of Southern Nevada, in Las Vegas, you don't have to be in the Sarasota Florida area to participate.

As long as you donate your ex's stuff, you can move on and have a new start on Valentine's Day.
