5:26 am
for trump, whose numbers also skew decidedly negative on that score, it's a chance to show the steady demeanor and command of the issues americans ordinarily want in a commander-in chief. we'd like to think both will be pressed to outline specific policies to directly address the very serious challenges facing our country at home and abroad. but the track record for details and accessibility in this campaign is spotty at best. playing a crucial role i are the three moderators. one, chris wallace of fox news, has already signalled that he does not feel compelled to correct the record if a candidate's response is not truthful. that's unfortunate. it should not be seen as inappropriate or overly partisan to do what journalists are supposed to do, get the best obtainable version of the truth. voters have a right to expect the candidates to be truthful from the outset and for the
