[Content Note: Class warfare.]

Those of you who have been reading me write about politics for awhile will probably recall my having said once or twice or three million times that I loathe how politicians (on both sides of the aisle) disproportionately focus economic policy on the middle class and routinely talk about addressing poverty only insomuch as it's "good for the economy," rather than because it's the decent thing to do, with urgency.

My friends, I give you Tim Kaine:

Fighting povery is really a growth strategy. It's a competitiveness strategy. But it's also a moral responsibility. And it's gonna be a defining mission of a Clinton-Kaine administration.
That's what I've always wanted to hear. Thanks, Tim Kaine.
