CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I think the most important thing here for Trump is the morning after. He might have lost the debate. It was pretty close. It was not the route that people say it was. But he really threw it away the morning after when he went after -- he went down the rabbit holes on the Miss Universe and all the other stuff. And that's happened to him before. I think he can hold his own. He just needs to be -- to ignore, as everybody here has said -- ignore the bait. He should just dismiss all the quotations that he hears, the way that Pence did. Deny it ever happened and then ignore the fact checkers the next day. And then to pivot and to talk about her. The preparation he has to do is to learn a few things she said to focus in on her weaknesses on Benghazi, which he never mentioned, e-mails, other stuff. And then just have somebody remove the cell phone overnight at least for a week. I think he will be all right.
