Completing her script possibly. Just because someone talks excessively doesn't mean there is worthwhile content.

We have agreed that foreign policy route is wrong.


Let's consider that a plus and a move forward.


He's not making his point so well on the oil. He SHOULD be saying 'keep it out of the hands of ISIS' - because without the finances they would not have grown so quick.

I thought Trumps results were about the same as Hillary's. Nothing great, nothing terrible. I though he started weak and got better.

Overall, I think this was a wash to me, both did just ok.

I also don't see this changing very many peoples minds. There didn't seem to be anything said that would get someone off of the fence.

Now comes the fun part, of watching each sides supporters talk about how great they did and what a monster the other person was.

Don't get me wrong, both sides will do this. But I can't wait to see MSNBC (who aired this) give their take on how evil Trump was in his forum.

I think there is more to it than that, but I would agree.

Isn't there a chicken you need to feed or something?🐔🐓

Of course it was an act .
Like when they try to get trump to "act" presidential?

I don't suppose you'll stick around for the commentary.

Oh and wanted to add I didn't think Lauer did a bad job at all. Maybe if you went through with a microscope, you could make a case that he was slightly harsher on one or the other, but I personally think it was pretty fair. I hope the debate moderators go after both of the equally.

First time I have heard Hillary say no troops in iraq or syria

Thought that whole middle east dictator toppling was her doing? We came...and all that??

Yes, it was fairly balanced. I think he did more of going back to Trump statements to trip him up. He could have done the same with multiple things Clinton had said too. He also defended Hillary at one point during Trump's section, but did not do the same for Trump, when she lied about one of his positions.

But overall, not bad. A LOT better than standard MSNBC fare.

Not bad at all. She was speaking from her experience and you could see that.

What surprised me...
She has a mental health folder in her agenda and within that a sub folder on veterans mental health issues, their causes, and her plan to deal with it. I mean she's getting ready to deal with it ALL !

Has there ever been a more obviously hostile moderator? It came off fairly unfair to me, and the tone changes, the nonsense anti-Russian statements

But I know more than the generals.

If this is a preview of how the debates are going to go he's in big big trouble.

So the last 8 years has been a success in foreign policy?

My cat knows more than the US generals that have been employed in the ME.

Here's a link to highlights of both of their responses.

Let us know if they missed anything or are misrepresenting anything said. I wasn't able to watch so I figured I'd look for a rundown.

Despite Trump being awful at the start and getting a bit better , I don't think Hillary hit it out of the park. This was supposed to be her environment where she'd shine using her 30 years of subject knowledge (even if her policies have been terrible). She failed in that regard.
If this is a portent to her performance in the debates then she may be in trouble.
Her winning hand is her experience vs Trump having none, but there didn't seem to be a huge gap tonight.
