LETTER: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump at the second presidential debate

11ldebateweb-master768The debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on Sunday night was a pathetic performance event rather than a substantive debate about pressing issues facing our country. The in-the-gutter level of discourse is a direct consequence of the poor planning by the Commission on Presidential Debates.

There was inadequate vetting of questions from the allegedly undecided voters in the audience. Many questions invited the defensiveness and personal attacks that ran through the debate. If I were an undecided voter, I would not have learned anything new. When we have two candidates vying for the most important position in our nation at a critical time in history, I can only ask: Is this the best we can do?
