Last night's debate between the five Democratic presidential candidates was substantive and spirited. The top two contenders, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, differed over gun control, a no-fly zone over Syria, and Wall Street reform.

Sanders and Clinton shook hands in agreement after he said the American people have heard enough about Clinton's "damn emails" - the scandal around her use of a private email address while she was secretary of state.

NPR's Ron Elving breaks down the debate with Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson.
