Hillary Clinton Dilemma: Should She Refuse to Debate Donald Trump?

Enough is enough, Hillary Clinton should pull out of Sunday’s debate with Donald Trump. With Republican leaders abandoning his campaign by the dozen, why should she give him a national platform to perpetrate more of his bluster on the nation?

Instead, it’s possibly the next president of the United States. ...
