You are somewhat correct. I don't want to beat up on Hillary, but if she fought for the ideology she represented (ultimately a moderate-centrist vision), rather than ceding every argument to Bernie, she would have fared better after the battle was won.

Obama believed in TPP, pushed for TPP, and he was probably right on that score in retrospect. Hillary didn't want to make the case that America should have a hand in writing international trade policies, so she didn't. She ceded the battle.

The problem is that Trump so greatly overshadows Hillary that she effectively gets a free pass for her failings. The Democrats get a pass. The metaphor I'd use is that it's difficult to inspect and catalog smoke damage of a house while its still engulfed in flames.

    And to be fair to Trump, his sexual misconduct has never been legally proven.


And to be fairer to the record beyond that -- there are allegations against Trump which precede the 2016 election allegations, and which are far more serious.
