Trump’s “disapproval” rating is now politically meaningless.
Nearly a quarter century later there are still political kernels of wisdom to be harvested from Bill Clinton's improbable, history-making 1992 presidential campaign.

Hillary's actual policy proposals are more likely to pad corporate bottom lines than better the lives of those at whom she lobs her populist campaign rhetoric.
Hillary Clinton's recent resurgent popularity increases the DLC's faith in a possible unprecedented failure this Fall. Despite the polls, the Council still believes she gives Democrats the best chance to lose.
The new majority Obama speaks of is not an empty platitude; it is the most compelling reason to vote for him.
