Racist, sexist->> After months of naked vitriol and name calling, Monday night's lead off debate posing the test of a lifetime for Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump, two of the most divisive candidates ever going at it for the first time on the same stage.

>> You're watching the two trains about to collide.>> Report Steve Holland says, with the polls close it all comes down to how the well prepared Clinton handles volatile Trump with everything on the line.>> Hillary Clinton and her aids are preparing for two Donald Trumps, a disciplined Trump and a free-wheeling, out of control Trump.
