Fat chance.

Donald Trump defeated sixteen other candidates in order to win the Republican nomination. Hillary Clinton struggled for months to hold off a Bernie Sanders insurgency. Though she had been convincingly ahead in polls in the weeks after the Democratic National Convention in July, that lead has been slipping into the single digits in most battleground state and national polls.

I waited a day to assess how the debate was analyzed by news accounts and pundits, and while there was a huge plurality in favor of Hillary's performance there were still the same old attempts to build Donald Trump up and give him credit for retracting stuff he said when no such credit should be acknowledged.

The first presidential debate on September 26 proved the need for that control as moderator Lester Holt was unable to keep Donald Trump from talking over his opponent and Hillary Clinton from occasionally using extra time.

What we saw last night was a presidential look that now includes women. Clinton demonstrated that being a woman doesn't mean you lack stamina. She was strong, informed, direct, relaxed, confident and capable at the podium.

It was a beautiful thing to watch. There's nothing sweeter than witnessing a Donald Trump implosion in front of 100-million people. I suspect the first presidential debate will likely go down as the modern-day Kennedy-Nixon contest for its ultimate impact on the election.

2014-02-03-BothSidesNowLogoPlaincolhirescopy1.jpgEach panelist has inside experience with presidential debates moving the needle -- how Reagan passed his 'Commander-in-Chief' orals and how Gore won on points but, sigh, lost politically. Since Trump, Clinton & Holt each benefits from a calm persona, the Host thinks this debate may be far more about policy than personality. Isn't that a good thing?
