The Democratic candidates for president were full of energy, as they greeted supporters following their debate Saturday night. The two-hour event largely focused on foreign policy, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton felt she fared well. (SOUNDBITE)(English) HILLARY CLINTON, SAYING: "Well, I think we had a good night tonight (APPLAUSE) And I know we had a good day because of how hard you all are working." The debate came one day after the Democratic National Committee cut off access by Clinton's main challenger -- Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders -- to a critical voter database. (SOUNDBITE)(English) SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS, SAYING: "I think there's more work that has to be done, but I think we have reached an agreement with the Democratic National Committee." Meanwhile, former Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley urged the nation to reject recent comments about Muslims entering the U.S. from Republican frontrunner Donald Trump. (SOUNDBITE)(English) FORMER MARYLAND GOVERNOR MARTIN O'MALLEY SAYING: "I'm very clear about the values and principles that unite us. Freedom of religion, speech, home, these are things we should never surrender, not to terrorists, or racist or fascist appeals like Donald trump is rolling out there." The debate comes just six weeks before the presidential nominating process begins, in Iowa.
