Marc Platt's Politics: I'm a Lefty
By Marc Platt
Listening to pundits criticizing how Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) gives speeches in these last two weeks really shows short-sided thinking. The "Message" HRC surrogates is delivering ALSO contains "Messages" for the down ballot races. Warren is expertly making a case for a Democratic senate and congress, as well as state legislatures. President Obama has done hundreds of ads for local, state and national candidates. HRC and her campaign are doing 40+ fundraisers not for HER campaign, but for these other races. Trump stopped doing any RNC fundraisers a week ago.
So when I hear this bullshit about Mr. Trump and his "Movement" I laugh. It is Hillary Clinton and her army of surrogates who are creating the real movement. The movement away from GOP congressional and state legislative hijacking of women's reproductive policies, religious terrorism (policies), LGBT rights.
Our country really has "MOVED" in a different direction since President Obama took office. Depending on your political leanings, that direction is good or bad.
This election is a mandate for the direction of the country at it appears by the poll numbers, people are pretty happy, despite the partisan yelping.

Enough of the Trump tapes. This is not the way to go. He is already down double digits in most polls. Go after him for his ridiculous and absurd racist policy ideas. We already know he is a sexual predator. His base is secure, but Trump is not picking up new voters and that is what HRC should keep attacking. Get the Millennial voters and the white educated white voters in the swing states.
This is headed towards a wave election and a landslide in the electoral college.
I was proud of Hillary Clinton for NOT stooping to his level and just brushing off all the accusations. She spoke to America, not the pundits who need to keep the controversy alive to get ratings.
The bold move was not by Trump, but rather the restraint Hillary Clinton showed when he threw everything at her. She is winning where it matters most, the polls and with the voters already voting.
Trump damaged his reputation forever last night as a commodity amongst the mainstream outlets. What major network will ever give him a show like The Apprentice again? His asshole-ness was brought to a whole new level after Friday's tape came out and then his boorish behavior at the 2nd debate.
This election is over and so is "Network Reality Star" Donald J. Trump.
Trump won HIS battle, but lost the war last night. Just watch...
