From the very start of the debate tonight, I got the sense that talks are already underway about these two running together. I think they are. They both appeared to do the “we are all Democrats” routine. They both appeared to be over the bristling dislike and the cold shoulder treatment. They’ve softened. This is great to see, actually.
