debate stage taking on her four challengers who at times refused to bring the fight to her. round one, the democrats sparring over the issues. hillary clinton feisty, aggressive, defending her record in the senate and as secretary of state. >> i would not ask anyone to vote for me based on my last name. i'd ask them to listen to what i'm proposing. >> reporter: from gun control. >> is bernie sanders tough enough on guns? >> no, not at all. >> it's time to stand up and pass comprehensive gun safety legislation as a nation. >> reporter: to foreign policy. >> the greatest strategic threat that we have right now is resolving our relationship with china. >> reporter: the biggest moment of the night, bernie sanders on clinton's e-mail scandal. >> the american people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn e-mails. >> thank you. me too, me too. >> reporter: lincoln chafee trying to seize on the moment. >> there is an issue of american credibility out there. >> secretary clinton, do you
