What was Donald Trump thinking? Totally unprepared for last night's presidential debate, Trump fumbled along for an hour and a half without presenting any coherent reason to think that he could serve effectively as President. Stylistically, Trump seemed intent on interrupting Clinton at every available opportunity.
Clinton was, as usual, a poised, bureaucratic, spokesperson for the far left. The economy, to Clinton, is a pie to slice up and dole out to your favorites. Gone is the old Kennedy commitment to growing the economy. Interest in economic growth hasn't been a topic of interest in the Democratic party since the 60s.
But, is Trump a viable alternative? The only thing that keeps the Trump presidency going is the drudgery and banality of the Democratic ticket. As the country slides further into a modern version of feudalism, the Clinton and Trump candidacies are frightening and embarrassing.
