Donald Trump’s not the only one who needs to do a better job in
tonight’s debate: Hillary Clinton also owes the voters more than her
ticket’s been offering.
Trump’s goals are obvious: Don’t waste viewers’ time playing defense
on the personal side issues that no one who might vote for you even
cares about — your taxes, old remarks and so on.
Tell the public what you want to do for the nation and how you’ll do it. Hit Clinton on her record and her promised plans.
Clinton, meanwhile, owes the nation a lot more clarity and detail on
those plans. Otherwise, if Trump does up his game, she’s going to wind
up looking as silly as Sen. Tim Kaine did last week in his debate with
Gov. Mike Pence.
