david kerley, abc news, reagan washington airport. hillary clinton is preparing to take on her fellow democrats in tonight's debate. but yesterday she took aim at the republican front-runner, clinton attended a labor protest in the shadow of donald trump's las vegas hotel calling on him to represent all of the people of the united states. meanwhile, don't expect to see former president bill clinton in the audience tonight. he arrived in vegas with his wife, but does not plan to attend the debate. hillary clinton's commanding lead in the polls earned her the prime spot on center stage tonight. all five candidates will try to distinguish themselves from the rest of the pack. it could be a make or break night for former governors martin o'malley, lincoln chafee and former senator jim webb. bernie sanders made it clear we won't see the kind of fireworks that were on display at the gop debates. >> i mean, i happen to respect and like hillary clinton. so i don't get into the personal attacks. you know that. but are there differences of opinion that should be discussed? of course, there are. that's what an election is
