Trump has proven he's willing to go there, but will Clinton be forced to get personal as well? Well, it's possible for her to keep her nose clean.

But so far Clinton has managed to stick to issues and address whether or not her opponent is qualified to be president. And with the bench of powerful and popular politicians already giving some lowbrow attacks, Clinton can sit back and let them do all the attacking. 

"Is this dinner too tacky for The Donald? Is he at home? Eating a Trump steak?" President Obama said at the White House Correspondents' Dinner. 

"He is not a business success — he is a business loser," Sen. Elizabeth Warren said.
