<p>In one of the more awkward and bizarre happenings you&rsquo;ll see in a debate, Saturday&rsquo;s Democratic presidential debate on ABC restarted without frontrunner Hillary Clinton following a commercial break and continued for over a minute until she returned to the stage.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Returning from break with much of the audience not yet back in their seats, co-moderator David Muir worked around that by first remarking to viewers that:<strong> &ldquo;Welcome back tonight. As you can see, we have a packed audience here in New Hampshire, and we&#39;re going to continue.&rdquo;</strong></p>
