It was never more obvious that the fantasy is still being played out in America where people think they have a choice when really there is only one choice - just the two of them up there by themselves pretending to be on different sides.

If this was a "debate" then why not let at least one independant candidate, maybe two or three, join in?

Or at least some questions about an alternative to the way things are done that challenge them both?
