Hillary Clinton will be center stage tonight, hoping to stay ahead of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. Former Virginia Senator Jim Webb and former Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee want to get their voices heard, despite low poll numbers.

Democratic Party strategist Angela Rye of IMPACT Strategies tells Here & Now‘s Jeremy Hobson that she thinks former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley might win the debate because he’s a strong debater and needs to break out of the pack.
