The second presidential debate at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, on October 9, 2016.

Hillary Clinton is a horrible candidate and here’s why. She just lost a debate to a cad, a man universally disrespected for how he’s treated Latinos, women, African-Americans, veterans, Muslims, his wives and even his own daughter.  

If you can’t win against an opponent caught on tape within 24 hours of your debate bragging about getting away with grabbing women’s genitals, you are not capable.

For Hillary Clinton, this debate was overtime and all she had to do was score from the one yard-line, while her opponent had to go 99 yards — and she lost.

If the best you can say in defense of Latinos called rapists by your opponent is that you want them to register to vote, you are not capable. 

If you can’t outshine a man who can’t stop sniffling like a coke user at three in the morning, you are not capable.  

If you can’t cogently postulate an answer to boring, badly read and pre-selected questions by petrified-looking citizens, you are not capable.

If you can’t stand up to a man who denies saying he wants to ban Muslims after saying he wants to ban Muslims, you are not capable.

If you are too enamored with liberal moderators to work around their incompetent questions, you are not capable. 

If you can’t stand up to a man who constantly says our country is not great when we all know it is, you are not capable.

If you can’t make the case against a man who avoided military service and then attacked a family whose son did and died, you are not capable.

If you can’t outperform – on the topic of Russia – a man who is backed and illegally defended by a Russian dictator, you are not capable.

If you can’t outperform a Donald Trump whose vague generalities and incoherent accusations reminded us all of our least likable drunk neighbor who shows up at our weekend barbecue, then what are you going to do when you have to debate smart, well-prepared heads of state?

The question for Hillary Clinton is simple: You faced off against an opponent who was so beaten and battered before the confrontation even began — it’s a miracle he even showed up. Why and how did you lose?

Let me close with a football analogy. For Hillary Clinton, this debate was overtime and all she had to do was score from the one yard-line, while her opponent had to go 99 yards — and she lost. What a choice for America? Heaven help us!
