What exactly has been keeping HRC from this spirited debate when the candidtes have met?

Seriously? Does anyone have any idea what the hell she is talking about?

17. You mean DWS's as-few-debates-as-we-can-get-away-with policy has failed?

 

But DINO-Debbie is so good at rigging games! Surely her arsenal of dirty tricks and clever stunts is not exhausted yet?

6. Exactly.

Terrible internal polling, a sinking ship.

8. Let's hope. We know it's bad in the first two states.

 

But it has been for a while. I hope this mans Hillary's expensive internal polling shows national and other states are closing.

16. Holy shit. That's not a very big sample size, but Hillary's lead is barely more than the MOE. n/t

7. Not a coronation anymore?

 

Reality snuck up on her and scared her silly?

Bill advised her she is in trouble?

She thinks if she can get Bernie to imbibe in spirits he will make a mistake?

10. I don't know. I hope when she engages she does it with her stern, low pitched "I'm so angry" voice.

18. I'm glad you mentioned it.

I try to restrain myself, but her voice is better than 2008, but still really awful.

I studied singing and sang from the time I was very small. Also played a couple of instruments and majored in music.

They say some people have faces for radio. Well, Hillary Clinton has a voice for a chemistry classroom. It's dry, doesn't seem to connect to her body or feelings, limited in range and timbre and expression.

Her problems with her voice suggest two things to me. First, she may not be a really good listener -- maybe more of a reader. Second, and this can be easily misunderstood, but she lacks integrity between her mind and her body. Her voice kind of gives away the fact that, while she may in her own life, share her deep and honest feelings with others, she has difficulty baring her emotions and risking herself when she speaks to crowds. She may have difficulty with that in her personal life, but that is not necessarily the case.

She sounds cold and calculating. Her laugh, her cackle laugh, is just begging to be used in some sort of cruel opposition video.

I'm sorry, but your voice is as much a part of your communication as is your choice of words. I've heard worse, but Hillary's is, in my opinion, probably not good enough for the presidency.

Compare to Trump. A fool, but when he speaks, he sounds genuine and vulnerable.

That's the problem for Hillary. She does not sound vulnerable and intimate enough. She sounds arrogant and cold. I could be wrong, but I think that is a big, big problem for her.

14. Her standing in the polls, then vs. now. That's the alpha and omega, and neatly explains everything.

15. Not gonna beat around the bush here...

She probably thinks she's got an ace in the hole and intends to use it in the next debate.

19. She's been on every side of the issues at least once.

All Bernie has to do is point out that her positions change and then change back.

21. I think she challenged Bernie to a drinking match

The campaign staffers are working on if it's beer, wine, vodka, tequilla, bourbon or the candidate's choice.
