Quote of the Day

Presidential platforms have always been aspirational versus practical, and this year is no different. [Any given candidate's] platform tells Americans where [he/she] wants to lead America, not what they believe is achievable. A good president sets a high bar and then fights to reach it. They don't accept ahead of time that something isn't possible and prematurely surrender. Democrats have already suffered from too much of that defeatist attitude. And as far as the primary is concerned, it's not wrong to criticize other candidates and point out the flaws in their plans. That's not “in-fighting.” It's the way the process is supposed to work, and there's no evidence that it results in a weaker nominee in the end.
