My honest opinion? Between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, no matter who wins, we lose.
What was the outcome? I think The Onion captured it best in their headline:
Open-Minded Voter Waits Almost 5 Minutes Into Debate To Decide Who Won
I think Clinton stuck to her script and it was noticeable, her performance seemed well-rehearsed which I don't necessarily think is a good thing. I think Trump also missed a lot of wide open opportunities to score points, but I also think he stayed on message and think he has more of a chance of changing peoples minds about him than Clinton does, whether he accomplished that for the better, I don't know.
Listening to Trump's law and order speech shortly into the debate made me think of Pappy O'Daniel in O Brother Where Art Thou.
Hillary Clinton was exactly as I expected her to be... I think I'll go take a shower now.
