Hillary Clinton is pulling out all the stops for tonight's highly anticipated debate against Donald Trump!

A new photo at the scene revealed that the 68-year-old's podium seemed to be altered, making it significantly taller and larger than Trump's station.

"One of them is clearly taller than the other," WABC correspondent Rita Cosby noted of the photo on Twitter.

Of course, at 5-feet-4-inches, Clinton is certainly at a height disadvantage against 6-foot-2 Trump.

"Clinton's team wanted the podium modified or a box added so she won't look short next to Trump," Cosby later said in an email.

But Clinton's health scandal could keep her at a disadvantage regardless. After collapsing at the 9/11 memorial earlier this month, the Democratic nominee has been accused of hiding major health issues from the public.

Monday's debate at Hofstra University, in Hempstead, N.Y. is set to begin at 9 p.m. and will run for 90 minutes with no commercial breaks.

Do you think Clinton will win the debate, or Trump? Sound off in the comments below.
