    I've got only one suggestion for her, related to Bills missteps if that is pushed by Trump. First of all she should say:

    1) I'm running; not my husband.

    2) I don't nor ever did "grope" men

    3) Neither I do discriminate or call "men" names.

    She should look at him with a pitiful condescending smile kind with a barely perceptible shaking her head and not say a word about the vulgar recording. He on other hand has to address it. While he is talking she needs to put on that same smile slightly shaking her head back and forth. He will go off like a bomb because he is counting on her to respond so he can counter attack. All she needs to do is maintain that acknowledging smile very slightly shaking her head.

    There's zero chance that he won't bring up Bill 10 times tonight. It's the meat these shallow fools feed on. The twist will be attacking her for the times she belittled the women Bill slept with. Coaches will have advised that women don't like that. The entire reason for the mud fight will be so republican women can find a reason to be against her. Trump being a dumb ass this week will hopefully cost him. General debate performance will be important as well. The R's will want to call him the winner before it takes place. We'll have to see how it goes.

    I think the next debate with Fox will be a clown show. Hopefully Hillary will do great again and recent events will result in post debate shifts in her favor.

    It looked like Trump just went back to often repeated lines from his stump speech regardless of the question. He jumped all over the place to squeeze them in and was largely off-topic most of the night. He also wandered around the stage often standing right behind Clinton, perhaps trying to make her feel uncomfortable while she was answering a question. Classic bully.

    Ms Clinton tried to stick to the questions but at times was forced to respond to Trump's lies. Clinton remained composed throughout, but some pundits criticized her for that. Of course if she would have interrupted Trump on his numerous lies, they would have criticized her for that too.

    Trump says he would hire a special prosecutor to prosecute her on her e-mails...even put her in jail. That's the red meat stuff that the Hillary haters in the audience loved.

    Ms Clinton won the debate by a mile. But some on the right are calling it a victory for Trump or at the worst a draw. Many in the media are disappointed that there wasn't more stuff to sensationalize. Their ratings probably dropped during the debate.

    What's with Trump's sniffing in answering every question?

    Yes Schmidt correct observation. My take on this is: This guy has absolutely no manners whatsoever and acts like a mafia boss. Especially his pacing and body language was extremely irritating. His knowledge of things was pathetic; especially about Syria. Also his continues interruptions and sniffing made him the bully who he is. If this guy becomes President, I fear for this country. Overseas they look at this as an country in disarray; they stare at this with total amazement. They've never seen an country sink this low, except some third world countries who put their leaders in jail during elections.

    I think Trump is too far gone to win and getting too crazy to look at to win. But over the weekend I have been polling his supporters that I know, especially the women. Not one was bothered by the recording with Bush. Something that gets overlooked is who his supporters are. Just like poor people are not simply rich people without money. Trump supporters are not thoughtful objective people. Reality is: typically kids are raised by grandparents because parents are not reliable, families have siblings that have a parent out of the family, drug and alcohol are a major part of personalities, no loyalty to anybody or for anything in spite of super voiced patriotism and on....... But still al one vote as good as anybody else's vote. Higher percentage don't have the right to vote.

    I like to add that in Europe they've totally lost their respect for the US and see this as no longer having an reliable partner. The coordination with the US on all kinds of political matters has been troubling lately, since the US has no clear policy related to the middle east as well Russia and the Ukraine. NATO's help is also kind of non regulated and ad hoc. All of this because our elections and an impasse in governing here has brought things to an standstill, regardless of Obama's efforts to proceed on an all kind of things before the end of his term. He's being railroaded by our politicians until the bitter end. Right now Europe sees this as an other third world country, instead of an leader in world affairs.

    What is wrong with Hillary? I'm totally amazed at her decision making ; Bill is out on the trail today here in FL stomping for her. Kind of very stupid. If I was her I would distance myself by warning him to stay out of the campaign. Sent him home, have him smoke an Cuban cigar and watch an porno movie. He is a "magnet" for giving Trump more and more ammunition. Does she not understand that? This will cost her; stupid indeed like her "server"

    Dutch -- It looks like you are having a conversation with yourself. So let me go on the record and say there is nothing wrong with Hillary. Her policies are all sound. Her motives are sincere. She is a life long progressive. And yes Bill helps her on the campaign.

    Anyway, you won't hear much from me in the next few weeks. We're headed to South Africa (Cape Town) today. It will be good to get away from all the petty politics. Oh and I just voted absentee...for Hillary of course.

    I'll see what the locals think about our election and report in.

    Safe travels. Have fun. I'm hoping that you'll have much to return to. Much in the good category that is.

    I guess you live on the same outer space planet as Jared; if you don't understand what I wrote, tell me that, instead of living in la la land and keep thinking the Clinton's are holier than the Pope. Sorry Bill has done an lot of stupid things, even when he visited the plane with the "attorney" in it. Can you imagine having him in the White House? What will he do have his own "harem" there? Or will he dictate Hillary and be acting as President again? As I said before "she" should run things; not him. Especially Trump will keep hammering on Bill's missteps. If you can't have an open mind about that, then welcome to the naive club.

    Anyway I hope that you learn something in South Africa; may be even some Dutch. Have a great trip!!
