Did you watch Trump-Clinton with an open mind?


Closed-minded people watched the first Clinton-Trump debate and automatically saw their candidate as the winner. Open-minded voters see strengths and weaknesses in each candidate. Can you say something positive about BOTH candidates or something negative about both from the debate? Disclaimer: I'm not happy about the choices, but I fear one more than the other.

    Excellent observations, CJ. I agree completely.

    My son also says he won't vote for either one. But voting for someone with no chance of winning won't change anything, will it? Do you vote your conscience or a chance to put the lesser evil into office?

    LOL. That's an honest answer!

    I assume you think that Clinton won the debate. :)

    That's a very interesting point about the Gish Gallop. Honestly, I thought he was just responding the way he usually does. It didn't occur to me that he was using a rhetorical tactic.

    That's great feedback, Paula. Likewise, I'm willing to watch all three debates before I make a final decision. I'm leaning in one direction so far, but as a fellow independent I'm also prepared to change my mind.

    Trump; as for the foreign/military point, he won't be afraid to accept help and listen to advisors. I believe that is where Obama failed in that point. Plus, he is no politician, that's a great part about him. My opinion, Greg.

    Junk....Don't be so vague. Tell us how you really feel! LOL. It's a shame that I must admit, you have a valid point. Tragic, isn't it? These 2 are what they've given us.
