An Observation

Anyone who is watching this Democratic convention is seeing just a ceaseless parade of intelligent, respected, ethical, and trusted people, some of whom are elected politicians and some of whom are private citizens, telling stories about the Hillary Clinton they know.

They are saying, each of them, how profoundly decent a human being she is. How caring and loyal and steadfast and hardworking and kind and determined and talented and indomitable.

And still there are people watching this convention who stubbornly believe that Hillary Clinton is a monster.

It's one thing to believe she's a liar, despite all evidence to the absolute damn contrary.

But, at this point, to maintain that opinion of Clinton, you are necessarily asserting that every one of the speakers at this convention is a liar, too.

Suffice it to say, that seems unlikely.
