Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump went personal in the second presidential debate, attacking each other on everything from vulgar language to emails. ABC News’ Martha Raddatz, who co-moderated the debate at Washington University in St. Louis with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, said she saw “a lot of surprise” from the uncommitted voters who had been selected to attend the town-hall style debate. The candidates set the tone for the debate as soon as they walked on the stage, by deciding not to shake hands, Raddatz said.
They thought they were ready for everything. I’m not sure anybody was ready for that.Martha Raddatz, debate co-moderator and ABC News correspondent
One clear winner in the debate was a member of the audience, Kenneth Bone, whose mild-mannered appearance has turned him into an unlikely online star. After posing a question to the presidential nominees on energy policy, the mustachioed became an Internet sensation almost instantly. A Facebook fan page celebrates his outfit: a red sweater and khakis. A parody Twitter account describes him as "the man of the people."
