It's the weekend, and you've finally gotten over your hangover from Tuesday's Republican presidential debate. What now? A Democratic debate, of course.
While former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley may not be as entertaining as the 12 GOP candidates still in the running -- including business mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump -- they're politicians all the same. And it's Saturday night. Why not party?
With former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee's decision to drop out and former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb considering an independent bid, playing this drinking game is even simpler than it was before. Simply print out this list, plop down in front of the TV and pop open a bottle of wine. The debate begins at 9 p.m. EST on CBS, and these rules were collected from Bustle, Debate Drinking and OSRIC.
No matter your candidate or party or feeling of hopelessness for the future of the United States, please imbibe responsibly.
Sanders references the 99 percent.
Clinton slowly shakes her head with a smile/death stare.
O'Malley talks about his Irish background.
The three candidates squabble over whose debt-free college plan is best.
Someone says "middle class," "right to vote," "minimum wage" or "debt crisis."
A moderator talks about Clinton's husband, former President Bill Clinton.
Anyone tries to act cool or be hip -- and you cringe.
If I'm gonna do a GOP drinking game, I gotta do one for the democratic debate too. #equality

Clinton's email scandal comes up.
Clinton reminds the audience she could be the first woman president.
Someone says "revolution."
The candidates say they agree with one another -- and then go on to prove they don't.
Sanders gets a little over-enthusiastic with the gestures.
O'Malley mentions his zero-tolerance policy from his time as mayor of Baltimore.
You wonder why you're watching this on a Saturday night.
Democratic debate drinking game: everytime they say the word free you drink.

Someone brings up Republican front-runner Donald Trump.
A candidate makes a tongue-in-cheek comment about their would-be vice president.
Sanders calls out Clinton for flip-flopping on the Trans-Pacific Partnership or Keystone XL pipeline.
Someone flat-out insults another candidate.
There's a picture-perfect "Saturday Night Live" moment.
Someone shows obvious anxiety about the approaching Iowa caucuses.
Sanders or an opponent brings up his honeymoon in the Soviet Union.
And finish your drink if:
Clinton is asked whether she wears a wig.
