Here are some ideas.

The current presidential election has been a hellscape of mythic proportions, and the only thing that makes it worse, besides every passing day, is the realization that the debates haven't even happened yet. That's right. We still have to see Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton be in the same room together even though it is technically illegal as it almost certainly qualifies for cruel and unusual punishment. Yet it's a requirement of the process, one which Clinton is inevitably preparing for through mock debates. For maximum preparedness, she's going to need someone to go up against someone who can mimic him. Sure, you can get an expert impressionist like Anthony Atamanuik, but why not get a bit more creative? Here are some ideas for stand-ins.

The Ghost of Boss Tweed
Who better to go against Hillary Clinton than the ghost of William Tweed? The 19th century head of Tammany Hall, Tweed was a significant landowner who oversaw widespread corruption and over time stole $200 million from taxpayers. Ya gotta admit, the dude probably would be good practice.

It's not going to be able to deliver the talking points, but it's gonna be helpful on a visual level at least, to build up Clinton's tolerance.
