    Rick From Facebook says:

    To paraphrase a well-known statement by U.S. President Harry S. Truman: "If it is too hot in the kitchen, get the hell out." Candidates who CHOOSE to remain in the "kitchen" of the current election campaign should be capable of "taking the heat."

    Even Hillary Clinton endured over ELEVEN HOURS of intense grilling before congressional investigative committees -- and doesn't appear to be griping about the "wear and tear" of the ordeal.

    Rick, thank you for your comment.

    While I agree that candidates should be required to "take the heat", I don't think it's right that Republicans were pitted against one another via the moderator, and on the very same same network, the Democrats were not. I applauded Anderson Cooper for his tough questions. I decried Jake Tapper for his questions geared to promote in house fighting among the Republicans. I'm anxious to see what the moderator on CNBC does.

    Regarding Hillary's eleven hours of grilling, well, in my view she brought that upon herself by lying and her actions while Secretary of State.

    Again, I appreciate you taking the time to comment, thanks again.
