Debating the debates

In a year where unconventional candidate Donald Trump took over the Republican party, how can Rich Lowry say 2016 is the year of the normal Republican? Most GOP senate candidates are running ahead of Donald Trump. Can we "all go back and pretend it never happened" Josh Barro asks? In the vice presidential debate, did GOP candidate Mike Pence win the debate because he did not defend Donald Trump's positions? How will the second presidential debate on Sunday differ from the first? If Donald Trump hasn't paid taxes for two decades, what does that say about his belief in government services? Plus, the politics of Hurricane Matthew.

On the Left, Gene Sperling (Economic advisor to Presidents Clinton & Obama and candidate Hillary Clinton).
