HEMPSTEAD - Some people today are calling tonight's first presidential debate at Hofstra University the Super Bowl of politics.

 For the past week, Clinton has been holed up in her Chappaqua home studying briefing books about Trump's personality, business ventures, and policy.  She says she's been preparing for insults, attacks, bullying and bigotry.

Trump's camp says he's been preparing for this moment for as long as he's been a businessman.  His team says he's been sitting at roundtables with some of his closest allies including former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former Fox head Roger Ailes.  

News 12 Long Island's Carol Silva has more on what to expect from both presidential candidates during tonight's debate.
