Oh, I think he'll debate for sure. I think that's just been something put out there. What I'm saying is, he's a little rusty to say the least. If people honestly don't see it, I'm not sure what to say. I hope in the coming ...I was going to say months, but the first debate is at the end of September, so really not that much time left. He needs to prepare. Trump has these moments as well, but they're less frequent. Trump might also have the occasional disaster of an interview, but at least he does them.
The accusations on either side I'm going to put to one side. I just find it so uninteresting. Yes, I believe both of these guys have things in their past that are unfortunate with respect to women. But, as I've said before ....a powerful man taking advantage of someone isn't actually breaking news. It's not right, but yes we know. I also agree with you that we need to hold our fire before we start making accusations.
When I asked the question, I was referring to him being clearly very rusty in these exchanges. Obviously, the clip that's making the rounds was part of a larger conversation, but this isn't the first time he's had an issue. Cocaine, lions and elephants, "very forward-looking," it was just a crazy response all around. I hope he picks a decent VP nominee and as you said, if he wins, I hope he does genuinely bring in the next generation of leaders into the fold. Fortunately for him, I don't think he's ever believed he's the smartest person in the room. Maybe he'll bring some of those folks in.
The debates will be extremely interesting, as there won't be an audience to play off, just these two men, the moderator, and the camera crew.
