Clinton's debate showing may dampen calls for Biden

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton gives a thumbs up to supporters at the end of the first official Democratic candidates debate of the 2016 presidential campaign in Las VegasBy James Oliphant WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Vice President Joe Biden faced an altered political dynamic on Wednesday after Hillary Clinton reasserted her command of the Democratic Party presidential race during a debate that may have left little room for him to run.
