Trump continues his cycle of self-destruction -- that could happen by his not releasing his tax returns and by yammering as he is want to do.
Clinton stays on course with her chirpy and upbeat style while focusing on plans and programs that aim at building the economy from the middle class out.
Clinton stays firm in addressing violence and terrorism while appealing for unity among affected communities -- she needs to put her boots on the ground to meet with local leaders including law enforcement.
As important, Clinton must keep Trump in the "unfit" box that he built for himself. His own personality disorders are likely to keep him there as the environment becomes less nice around him.
"I think Donald just criticized me for preparing for this debate. And, yes, I did. You know what else I prepared for? I prepared to be president. And I think that's a good thing," Clinton said.
Trump said that Clinton has said things about him that are "not nice. Not nice at all."
