During the second presidential debate, audience member Karl Becker asked each candidate to name one positive thing about their political opponent.

Donald Trump answered: "I will say this about Hillary: She doesn't quit. She doesn't give up. I respect that."

It was a nice end to a very nasty debate.

For example, Trump told Clinton earlier in the debate: "Bernie Sanders, between superdelegates and Deborah Wasserman Schultz, he never had a chance. And I was so surprised to see him sign on with the devil."

And at one point, Clinton said, "Anything to avoid talking about your campaign and the way it's exploding and the way Republicans are leaving you."
