PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- The evening started with a brief talk about the Philadelphia Eagles, being that the moderator is former Eagles player Nnamdi Asomugha.

The topics of discussion included wins and losses, the next presidential election, Russian meddling in elections, and the college admissions scandal.

Pitching the expansion of work study programs and fairer loan borrowing practices.

When asked about loss, and recovering from a loss, Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said, "What's really hard that when you have an election that has extreme consequences and there are things that weren't on the level."
