Trump-Clinton debate was exactly what I expected. Vicious stuff.

Based on what I saw of it — and this particular exchange (courtesy CNBC) struck me as a good example of what happened tonight — I don’t see the dynamics of the race changing much based on this debate.  Hillary Clinton seemed smug and condescending, that’s the best way to describe it.

Tonight’s the night! Trump vs. Clinton at Hofstra University
