Over/under of the ADA being invoked sometime during or after the debates?

Biden is not going to make sense and Trump will be all over the map. :coffee:
Biden will make sense. If you watched his press conference today where he had to answer questions you saw that he is fine cognitively and can answer questions in a cogent, thoughtful way. Trump will lie a lot and act like a 10 year old. Biden will come off as the more knowledgable and rational of the two. But, for some reason, there is a substantial proportion of population that thinks that a 74 year old man acting like a 10 year old and lying a lot is cool.
Or a 74 year old man acting like a 10 year old is the same as Biden.

I didn’t know that clinical psychology was part of your talents. :lol:

My money’s on Trump in the debates.

Biden will win in terms of actual substance. Will the polls of those watching the debates indicate that most who watched the debates think Trump lost as was the case when he had his debates with Hillary? I don't know. But there's a pretty good chance. Again: If you watched the Biden press conference today you know that there is a HUGE difference between the way in which Republicans have been trying to cast Biden and the reality. He's very capable. And he does come off as far more rational than Trump does. You don't have to be a clinical psychologist to see that.

And say things as they really are

I watched part of it and wasn't impressed, he answered a lot of softball questions. He is more rational than Trump until he gets angry during a debate, and his parties platform, while having a few good ideas, is just too far left.

The last question was not a softball question at all. He did a very good job of responding to it. I don't know that the others were all that softball either.

And at least the Democratic Party HAS a platform. The Republican Party platform is "Whatever the Dear Leader says."

As I said, I didn't see the entire interview, and what I did see was pretty soft questions. The have a platform, one I can't support. Some of what Trump says appears to made up as he's is speaking. Third party vote again for me.

POTUS 1 - September 29 - Case Western University, Cleveland Chris Wallace
90 minutes long. Divided into 6 15-minute segments on topics announced a week ahead of time.

VP - October 7 - University of Utah Susan Page
90 minutes long. Divided into 9 segments of 10 minutes each.

POTUS 2 - October 15 - Adrienne Arsht Center for Performing Arts in Miami Steve Skully
90 minutes long. Town hall format.

POTUS 3 - October 22 - Belmont University in Nashville Kristen Welker
90 minutes long. 6 15-minute segments on topics announced at least a week ahead of time.

As far as "virtual" or not - I'm sure the audience will be pretty limited but, no indication the candidates won't be in person.
Moderators added.

It's almost like there will be debates. :coffee:
Looks like it!

(Nancy Pelosi hardest hit)

BTW if the DNC had caved to her I am pretty sure you’d slink out of your virtual hovel and defend it.
