Here’s what’s likely coming in tonight’s debate.
This is Mrs. Clinton’s last chance to put away Donald Trump, since the last debate will be ‘moderated’ by Democrat Chris Wallace, who works for Fox and can be expected to at least provide a modicum of fairness.
Tonight’s debate will be ‘moderated’ by Anderson Cooper and Martha Raddatz, both very partisan Democrats. And they will both be striving to avoid winding up like Matt Lauer. Ms. Raddatz, you might remember was the ‘moderator’ for the 2012 Vice Presidential debate where she leaned heavily on Paul Ryan while allowing Joe Biden to behave like an eight-year-old who’d missed a few days’ dose of Ritalin.
It’s a town hall type event, which will feature selected undecided voters asking Trump and Hillary questions. It goes without saying that just like the last debate, Mrs. Clinton will have received all the questions in advance, and will know which questions she’ll be getting and which one’s Trumps getting, so she can have carefully prepared and rehearsed answers to the former and suitable one line zingers to the latter. She will also be wearing her little earpiece again so she can receive backstage reminders and remember her lines.
And she will be jacked up on enough drugs to allow her to last for 90 minutes. She dropped out of site for almost a week after the last one, so she could dry out.
