Yes, it's objectively true that Donald's campaign is a major flop. The candidate himself is a full-tilt bigotry machine with the presidential fitness of a garden gnome. His team is comprised of bullies and ne'er-do-wells, who have utterly failed to build a national campaign that's ready to compete in a general election.There is much more at the link! So head on over to read the whole thing!
But it's important to recognize that Hillary's campaign is not merely successful by comparison to Donald's clown show. It is objectively successful by the standards of any presidential campaign. Including her own 2008 campaign. Which is yet another indication that Hillary listens, takes her lessons, learns from them, and grows.
Which just happens to be another stark contrast with Donald.
This has been a long campaign for Hillary and her team already. Their stamina is amazing. Which is not merely an observation about the campaign, but, frankly, another qualification for the presidency.
The presidency is not a sprint; it's a marathon. I'm both impressed and reassured to see Hillary getting her second wind in a big way, right at the moment lots of other people would stumble.
