    Good evening TOD. Yardarm, I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. There are no words of condolence that will make this more bearable but I hope your memories sustain you. That one life was saved from this tragedy is a blessing. You’re in my thoughts and prayers.

    Stumbled across an article today that I don’t recall seeing posted here but is a heartwarming read to those of us who believe that our beloved President has accomplished so much. He wanted to be a transformational president and at least Jonathan Chait believes that will be his legacy.

    “Barack Obama’s Transformational Success Is Only Beginning to Come Into View
    ….

    Nobody who has seen the tea party, the shutdowns, and now Trump can maintain that Republican leaders could have struck any compromise on a high-profile issue with the hated opposition president and survived. The base’s rage with Obama is essentialist, rooted specifically in racism and more generally in a reactionary yearning for the restoration of crumbling social hierarchy.

    It is also obvious that the pre-Obama America they seek to restore is slipping irrevocably into the past. For all of Hillary Clinton’s personal image problems, she benefits clearly from her association with a president who has governed wisely, fairly, and (not incidentally) without any major scandal. The reception his wife received [at the Dem convention] is a leading indicator for her husband’s historic reputation. As she has become a figure of admiration and esteem, almost befitting a national hero, so, too, one day will he.”

    Of course, I love articles that reinforce my view of PBO and Michelle!

      Sounds lovely Foxfire – but they ALWAYS have to add a negative about someone – “For all of Hillary Clinton’s personal image problems” – that wasn’t needed to make the point that she benefits from PBO – nothing to do with the story whatsoever.

          Thanks so much, Bob – my son’s next procedure is Aug. 29, so I’ll keep you informed. (He gets a kick out of the fact people on TOD ask about him. Of course, I’m your biggest P.R. person!) Good night to you and yours!

      JO’B, imagine competing in an Olympic sport with a corset that has got to be squeezing her waist and making it hard to breather, and long, cumbersome skirts. She must also be roasting on a hot golf course with all of those layers of clothing. And she has to keep her hat on and her hairpins in! Talk about handicapping a player.

      Did you not see it amk – couple of animal rights protesters tried to get on stage (or did get there?). The ss guy next to Hillary – was great – he looks really caring. No pushing (see the trump guy) – just a friendly arm of support. Quite obvious who got the better SS job

    Aha – I believe we have the advantage over the US – in that we can watch the games live – no 1,2,3,4 hours delay. Other than the very few games held in the southern half of the world, most of the action occurs in the middle of the night. We have replays during the day – but can also watch it live at night.

    And so after years of racism we seem to be moving to sexism. This is from a discussion on cnn as to why Trump does not want to debate Hillary. No link – not giving them clicks

    “Clinton is a policy wonk who meticulously prepares for any and every matchup as she gets ready to walk onstage resplendent in her pantsuit of choice.”

    Did they EVER mention the clothes worn by PBO, McCain, Romney as they entered a debate. Hillary scores this mention ALL the time – really really annoys me.

      99tThe US had yet to evolve beyond sexism, or any other ism, for that matter. Hillary has always been subjected to a double standard. Like every woman in the world who has tried to succeed in an important job, she has to be smarter and work harder than anyone else.

        My country is the same jackie – Our female PM received every day criticism of her hair, her clothes and her shape. Maybe – one day. I live in hope.

      they talked about PBO’s clothes all the time. i.e. Mom Jeans, the color of his suit etc. So yes they did.

        I think they did initially nospin – I remember hearing his explanations about the suits and colors – and I do remember individual choices being spammed (the tan suit) – but no way have his choices been non stop attacks as have Hillary’s.
