BOTH SIDES NOW: OCTOBER 17th, 2015

After Hillary’s star turn at the debate, David Frum thinks the last remaining question is whether “she’s too ethically tainted to be president.” Jonathan Alter argues no but worries that “too often the Clintons engage in cover-ups without crimes.” There’s agreement that the GOP is getting close to a crackup based on their extreme base and divisions in the Speaker’s race. Alter suggests that Boehner enact key legislation on immigration & infrastructure in his final weeks to show that Republicans can govern. Frum thinks that would blow the party up.
