In contrast to those lowered expectations set by Trump's staff, the GOP nominee may have raised the bar for himself by poking fun at Clinton's debate preparations at a rally in Pennsylvania Thursday night, suggesting she is still recovering from her recent bout with pneumonia.
She also narrowly tops Trump when it comes to filling Supreme Court vacancies, as well as another of the billionaire's signature issues: handling global trade.
Anyway, remember when Ted Cruz called Donald Trump "a sniveling coward?"

Oil falls on US crude stock rise
On the New York Mercantile Exchange, West Texas Intermediate futures were trading up 2% at $44.91 a barrel. In London , Brent North Sea crude for delivery in November won 22 cents to reach US$45.95 a barrel.

HFA Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri said, "Donald Trump has shown a clear pattern of repeating provably false lies hoping that nobody will correct him".
Trump has wavered in the language he's used to describe the list. At others, he's said the people he would nominate would share similar qualities to those on the list.
Collins said the Republican nominee understands the importance of presenting "President Trump to the American public". According to a new AP-GfK poll, just 30 percent of registered voters say they consider Trump at least somewhat qualified to be president. "Jim Crow wasn't very good for black people". I thought she'd do well to use side-eye sparingly, and also to just have a two-hour speech prepared that accounts for Trump interruptions-which is to say that she needs to foreground her plans for the country.

The end of the ad features a black slate with a sobering question: "Is this the president we want for our daughters?" For the somewhat larger group seen as "likely voters", Clinton is leading by five percentage points which is actually less than the nine-point lead she had back in August.
"If you've watched Hillary Clinton in the past then you'll know, when the spotlight is at its brightest and the pressure is most intense, that's when she brings the A-plus game", Kaine said.
Both candidates inspire mostly negative emotions, but American voters are particularly anxious about the Republican. The city was under a midnight curfew after two previous nights of chaotic protests that led to one death as well as injuries, arrests and vandalism.
Barack Obama, who has been aggressively campaigning for Ms Clinton over the past week, had simple advice for the upcoming debate. "I think she deserves that and I'm going to be nice".
Giants' Cueto could miss next start because of groin strain
The Dodgers entered the game last in the major leagues in batting average against left-handers (.210) and last in OPS (.618). The Giants remained in a three-way tie for two spots in the winner-take-all game, because the New York Mets and St.
