Trump certainly doesn't not have a command of policy issues, especially foreign policy. He's done ok in the debates, but a major factor there is the sheer number of people. There not much time for each person, and so many different battle lines that individual failings like that can be minimized. One on one, he's not going to be able to get away with saying things like "I don't understand foreign policy, but I'll be the best in the world by the time I'm elected!" Hillary will be the obvious "serious" choice, and I'm not sure where Trump gets an advantage on attacking her that hasn't already come out.

I'm also not convinced that the public, the ones that don't already support Trump, will be able to stand his personality for 2+ hours at a time. Hills isn't exactly a charmer, but she'll certainly look better by comparison to Trump.

This is right.  Trump does okay in debates because he is good at throwing a talking point or backing an opponent into a corner, but the chaos of trying to get 10 people involved allows him to then back away.

He did well in one of the debates against Jeb where they had some back and forth, but I don't think he could do that for two or three hours.  He seems to come out strong then fades away, which is fine in these large debates, but again, one on one, he can't do that.

Do you really think Hillary would be effective debating trump? Its going to be her trying to call him a racist vs. him pointing out policy failures the entire debate.

Someone probably registered that domain twenty years ago. And you can't buy something from someone if they won't sell it. I'm guessing they're not Jeb fans.

Private registration, unlock Trump's own websites, but that doesn't mean much one way or the other.

Trump has a pretty good grasp of the politics of the moment, but he's not at all a policy guy. Hillary would make him look like a buffoon if he gets drawn into a policy discussion. Regardless of which side of the issues you personally fall on, it's not hard to see that Hillary demonstrates mastery of policy issues (especially foreign policy) on a totally different level than Trump. I doubt he even has enough grounding to attack her on the things she's actually vulnerable on.

Jeb has jeb2016.com. I checked, but nothing is coming up for Jeb2020.com. Can he really be that stupid?

If you follow the ICANN/registry trail, the simple answer is, yeah, he is that stupid.

Seth rogan is like Soo totally edgy guys. I can't wait for his next role where he pushes the boundaries of cinema and plays a lazy 30 something Jewish guy trying to get laid.
