Elizabeth Warren made a forceful case for a female president in Tuesday night’s final presidential debate before primary voting begins. She also stood behind her accusation that progressive rival Bernie Sanders had told her a woman couldn’t beat Donald Trump. Sanders vehemently denied Warren’s accusation, which threatened to split the Democratic Party’s left flank at a critical moment less than three weeks before Iowa’s caucuses. And he said of course a woman could win, noting that Hillary Clinton scored millions more votes than Trump. The Democratic Party’s leading presidential candidates also sparred over Iraq, war and foreign policy.
