Donald Trump says he took the moral high ground at the first presidential debate by not mentioning the infidelities of former President Bill Clinton.The Republican nominee's decision to dredge up the former president's sexual history is a risky move in his campaign against Democrat Hillary Clinton, whose own team isn't fazed by the attack line.Clinton was asked on her campaign plane whether she had an obligation to speak out if Trump brought up her husband's infidelities. Trump critics say it all could backfire, elevating Clinton in the eyes of female voters and motivating her base. Republican pollster Frank Luntz said Trump's reference to Bill Clinton's indiscretions was his low point Monday night among the group of voters with whom he watched the debate.Trump first touched on Bill Clinton's sexual past the weekend before the debate, threatening to seat Gennifer Flowers in the front row.Trump did not directly mention Bill Clinton's affairs on stage with the Democratic nominee, but did make a veiled reference.Moments after the debate ended, Trump raised Bill Clinton's affairs unprompted, in response to a question about Hillary Clinton's performance.
