Did Martha Raddatz just win the debate?


During Sunday night's extremely contentious debate, reining in the candidates — especially Donald Trump, who literally said he would put Hillary Clinton in jail — seemed like an impossible task.

That job went to CNN's Anderson Cooper and Martha Raddatz from ABC News, who actually did a pretty good job of giving each candidate equal talking time.

Great job by moderators enforcing equal time:
Trump: 40 mins, 10 secs
Clinton: 39 mins, 5 secs
per @CNN calculation

Raddatz didn't back down from Trump, stopping the Republican presidential candidate when he went over his time and pressing him on questions he ignored, especially those related to his strategy in Syria. (In one of her most memorable moments of the debate, she interrupted him and said sternly about his plan to fight ISIS, "Tell me what your strategy is.")
