Throughout, Clinton contrasted Trump's often wild and crazy (and not to mention wildly inconsistent) positions with her own claims of having an experienced hand on the tiller (and not to mention on the button). Clinton's overall point was that Trump is "temperamentally unfit to be president," and that he'd be incompetent and dangerous as commander in chief.
