84 million Americans tuned into the most watched presidential debate ever last Monday night. In this episode, we’re talking about who won—or lost—the debate and what, if anything, did we learn? Did Clinton emerge as the rational, reasonable choice or the condescending witch with a tainted record? Did a kinder, gentler, more even-keeled Trump win over independent voters or did a radical anti-politician continue to shake things up? Are the American people the real losers in all this?
