2016 Presidential Debates

2016 Presidential DebatesHello, politics fans! I guess we are going to have three presidential debates between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. The dates are listed below. There is some word that Trump might back out of one or more of them. We’ll see.

I would warn my liberal friends not to underestimate Donald Trump in a debate. He could figure out a way to look good. Remember: a lot of Americans don’t like pointed-headed intellectuals who know stuff. Remember the Gore vs Bush debates? I assume that the Clinton campaign understands this and is taking these debates very seriously.

Vice-Presidential Debate

I really liked last year’s VP debate. Or rather, I liked watching Uncle Joe eat Poor Boy Ryan alive. Best line, “Look, folks, use your common sense. Who do you trust on this — a man who introduced a bill that would raise it 40 — $6,400 a year; knowing it and passing it, and Romney saying he’d sign it, or me and the president?”
