Hillary Clinton—along with weary voters, political commentators, and whatever alien civilizations are picking up our TV broadcasts—is glad the presidential debates are over. Politico reports that Clinton and her staff seemed triumphant when they boarded her campaign plane after the Las Vegas debate. "I had my very first debate in this campaign on Oct. 13, 2015, so it’s been a year and now we have finished our last debate, and I’m feeling both relieved and very grateful," Clinton told reporters.

Asked whether she would accept the election results, Clinton again said that Trump's refusal to commit to accepting the results was "horrifying." "What he said tonight is part of his whole effort to blame somebody else for his campaign and where he stands in this election," she told reporters. Trump, meanwhile, tweeted the results of several online polls that declared him the debate winner by hefty margins. "That was really exciting. Made all of my points," he tweeted. "Just landed in Ohio," he said in a later tweet. "Thank you America- I am honored to win the final debate for our MOVEMENT." (More Hillary Clinton stories.)
