From time to time the news media call upon debate coaches to analyze the presidential debates, but always with an emphasis on what each candidate needs to do in order to score political points.

They discuss the civic virtues of the presidential debates, the challenges to moderating a good debate, and their hopes and fears for the upcoming debates between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
