I was thinking both.

I almost always feel like I need a shower after voting.

Annalee I am not sure the debates will change the election anyway except maybe to make people throw their hands up and not vote!

No matter how/who/what I am for; I just don't think the Dems have a candidate that can beat Trump.

But then again, I thought Hilary (not that I was for her because I wasn't) would beat Trump hands down and that didn't happen so what do I know????

CenterTeacher20 I watched the whole thing and the after-show that happened on CNN and all of it just left me frustrated.

Josiegirl As I said, I was going to simply find highlights in the news. Wow, lots of drama. For someone who is expected to run a country, I'd expect a lot more.
I guess I'm clueless as to what a debate is supposed to be; did they cover any of the issues at all or just mock, lie and destroy?

IDK. He was enjoying being a pot stirrer, too. I was let down by all of them.

Parliamentary Procedure is something that I respect and really enjoyed learning and practicing in my high school/college days. It gave order and dignity to debates. Respect, order and dignity matters. This was not a speak easy.

We've been in trouble for a while now. It's just getting worse. Praying we are at/nearing rock bottom so that the only way to go from here is up.

I am tired of rich politicians and celebrities dictating how I am suppose to feel, think and act.

I would've termed them both the first day.

The disrespect, petulance and plain old stupidity in the political world these last few years is down right ridiculous.

Don't even get me started on the media...

I didn't watch it. And seeing this reply is scary. :/ But I'll check the news and see what their input is.

Either way, being politicians I doubt there's a lot of truth of what was said compared to what would happen no matter who gets elected. Sad really.
Truth, justice isn't the American way anymore. It comes down to who can pull off promises and lies better.

Valerie928 I am definitely watching. Can things possibly get any worse here in America? Probably, but why not watch Amerca's most entertaining thing to be aired on TV since the pandemic started.

This. Pull my hair out or throw something at the tv.

Annalee I'm a channel-changer so I will probably watch some of it while watching many other things then catch up on the highlights??!!

Blackcat31 While I am interested I probably won't watch.
I find lately I am much happier if I reserve my evenings for anything not related to work or politics.

Michael We have been engaging in Presidential political conversation since Obama's first term. Clicking on the TAGS will bring up some of the former conversations. A lot has changed over the last 10 years!

I like using polls and will start the final month of fanfare will a simple who will be watching the debates. I am staying home with my family to watch it. I think we will see two different political philosophies and tactics. One standard and the other avant garde.

Here's a 2017 post from the last election: https://www.daycare.com/forum/showthread.php?t=85656
