As I already knew who I was going to vote for, I didn’t see much sense in watching the Clinton/Trump debate last night. Though I’ll vote for Clinton as the far superior candidate, I don’t like either of them, and would have watched only to see what style the debaters assumed, and how many metatarsals Trump managed to insert into his mouth.
I did tune in for about 10 minutes near the beginning, only to see a raucous shouting match with the moderator, Lester Holt, either unwilling or unable to control the fracas. At that point I decided to read a book.
Judging from the emails I got last night, Clinton “won” the debate, but of course my friends are all Democrats. I scanned the front page of today’s New York Times and saw this editorial headline:
So, as I’ll be downtown for the next few hours, I’ll leave it to readers to discuss the debate. Who did the better job? Did the moderator do his job? What were the biggest gaffes or “gotcha” moments? Have at it in the comments below, and I’ll be back by noon.
