Seen on the trail: First 2016 presidential debate
Let's do this. #DebateNight
"Don’t let anyone tell you that great things can’t happen in America. Barriers can come down. Justice and equality can win. Our history has moved in that direction—slowly at times, but unmistakably—thanks to generations of Americans who refused to give up or back down. Now you are writing a new chapter of that story. This campaign is about making sure there are no ceilings—no limits—on any of us. And this is our moment to come together." —Hillary
“You know, you don’t grade the presidency on a curve. This is serious business.” —President Obama
