The national presidential debate between Republican Party candidate Donald Trump and Democratic Party candidate, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is set for Monday, September 26 at 9:00 p.m. at Hofstra University, in Long Island, New York.
The debate is said to mark one of the biggest media events in the nation’s history. It is expected to top the 24 million viewers who watched a recent debate among Republican Party candidates vying for the nomination.
Both candidates in this debate have everything to lose and will no doubt be seeking to do their utmost best to impress the electorate.
Clinton and Trump will have 90 minutes to make their pitch, convince, and win voters confidence and trust.
Also, they must both show that they are conversant with the issues and are capable of leading the country.
All is at stake in this debate, and already it is being dubbed accordingly:
The Moment of Truth
Two the Hard Way
Thriller at Hofstra
The Great Showdown
A Battle Royal
Trump has shown over the campaign period to date that he is light on substance but matchless on style and image presentation.
He knows how to make good TV, and people want to see how well he will do in a one-to-one match up against a Hillary.
The question being asked, “Will Trump lose the entertainment value he generated in the primary debate? Will there be any cheap thrills or theatrics?”
On the other hand, Clinton is making history as the first woman to reach this far in a Presidential election, and one who could possibly become the first female president.
That said, a large percentage of the electorate is disenchanted with her attributes as a candidate.
Now, the question is will she bore viewers with facts or will she add a little panache to her game?
Whatever the outcome, this debate lends to compelling viewing and if “Gennifer” Flowers and Mark Cuban attend as supporting cast, it will certainly make this momentous occasion into a drama.
