While one candidate is “on a presidential death march we’ve never seen before” — grotesquely coarsening and cheapening the national discussion, sowing dissatisfaction, division, and distrust (click that link if you have time) . . .

. . . the other — eminently qualified, serious, steady, compassionate — hopes to put Americans to work in good jobs revitalizing our infrastructure; boost worker dignity and consumer demand (and lower government subsidies) by hiking the minimum wage; boost the economy and improve millions of lives by enacting comprehensive immigration reform of the kind that passed the Senate 68-32; reduce the burden of student debt by allowing federal loans to be refinanced at today’s low rates; enact the sort of sensible gun safety measures 90% of Americans favor — and much more.

When they go low, we go high.  Not perfectly, perhaps; but there really is a contrast.

In that spirit, are you ready for two minutes of something actually uplifting? Watch this: “We are Democrats.”

The “email” stuff is wildly overdone.  Click here.

The Benghazi tragedy –scandal-wise — is entirely without substance:

WASHINGTON (AP) — A two-year investigation by the Republican-controlled House Intelligence Committee has found that the CIA and the military acted properly in responding to the 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, and asserted no wrongdoing by Obama administration appointees.

Debunking a series of persistent allegations hinting at dark conspiracies, the investigation of the politically charged incident determined that there was no intelligence failure, no delay in sending a CIA rescue team, no missed opportunity for a military rescue, and no evidence the CIA was covertly shipping arms from Libya to Syria. . . .

The Miami Herald (no Democratic puppet) has it right: “The narrative that Hillary Clinton is the lesser of two evils is patently wrong. Ms. Clinton is a pragmatic, tough-minded woman of accomplishment and political conviction with a demonstrated mastery of policy.” Not perfect, to be sure — read the whole thing.  But “she fights the good fight, and she fights the right ones in the name of equality and democracy.”

Twenty days to go.
