The Democratic presidential candidate debate in Charleston, South Carolina, reprised a piece of the political theatre similar to a performance six days earlier in Las Vegas.
On stage in Nevada last week, the debate played out like a dinner-theatre murder mystery. Michael Bloomberg was the victim, while everyone else on the stage had a motive and the means to do him in.
This time, on Tuesday night, it was Bernie Sanders who got the rhetorical bludgeoning.

    It was the last debate before South Carolina votes on Saturday - followed by 14 other states next Tuesday - and was full of tense moments and sharp exchanges, reflecting the high stakes.
