    Assuming that a debate is actually held the questions is:

    Which Donald Trump will show up?

    The same one that shows up to everything. The one who says what's on his mind, giving no thought to repercussions. In my mind, this is mostly a good thing, although it as gotten him some trouble in the past.

    One thing I like about the seeming impulsiveness of Donald Trump is that he just says things; meaning he doesn't try to hide what he's thinking.

    Well that Trump differs from place to place from speech to speech. I have no idea which one will show up. But it should be interesting.

    Do you want a president who acts and decided on impulse?
    Wouldn't that be a bit dangerous in foreign policy?
    In domestic policy?
    What happens when his impulse changes?

    Personally, I'd rather have one that acts impulsively and is liable to change his mind after, than one that is consistent but I can't trust.

    Am I saying he's the ideal candidate? Far from it. But I do like that he's real, even if he's wrong.

    Interesting reply. If I were int he military I surely would not want such a man/woman as my commander-in-chief as president. Trump's temperament of exploding and not making careful considerations make him most dangerous IMHO.

    The great thing about it, though, is he would only have to control himself in diplomatic situations, which as successful as he is he knows how to do. If he makes a rash decision (going to war, as an extreme example) there are systems in place where what he says does not become policy immediately (Congress, etc).

    Right now its politics - as Reagan once told a crowd - I cant do anything until I am elect.
    AFter Trump gets elected - then he can govern effectively

    Trump can't declare war by himself. It has to come through the senate.

    With all those damning Hillary emails finally seeing the light of day, it's a wonder she hasn't been put in cuffs yet.
    What most of us knew about her level of corruption just a scant month ago --has now become a tidal wave of criminality.

    Pay to play indeed. She and Bill have enriched themselves at the expense of selling out our country. She has left us vulnerable. She sold government secrets to foreign countries.

    She is under the thumb of the incredibly evil George Soros who has undermined thirty countries and counting. He wants America as we now know it to crumble and really set up a global world order. She is complicit in this.

    The Clinton Foundation alone is filled to the brim with corruption.

    Multiple deaths of many Clinton associates (or those who have tried to expose her)have been killed over the past three decades. At least four since June of 2016.

    I want to see her put in the Big House --not the White House --quickly. She really should be executed for her treasonous acts. The Rosenbergs were executed for far less in 1953.

    So low-info folks can come up with all sorts of negative things to say about Trump --a lot of their charges are imaginary though. To have the choice of him or the beast is the easiest decision that can be made.

    What she has done is beyond Beyond Belief.

    If she is prosecuted no doubt Obama will pardon her if the timing is right and by some strange set of circumstances it probably will be so.

    Hank, the OP is about which Trump will show up at the debate. Which one do you think will show up?

    The new scandalous information about Hillary and MORE alleged criminal activity will definitely impact his debate persona.

    I predict the "attack dog" Trump will show up and verbally tear her to pieces.

    I think the Trump who shows up will be well-coached and reasonable (for Trump, at least.) The bigger question to me is which Trump will leave the debate, the one who entered or the one who had a third-grader reaction to a question he didn't like.


    Am I saying he's the ideal candidate? Far from it. But I do like that he's real, even if he's wrong.

    He's as real as the color on a chameleon, only instead of changing to hide from predators, he changes to attract voting blocs (often in self-contradictory manner.)

    Indeed - and because of his demeanor I really believe our enemies will fear him.
