The First Female Nominee and the First Authoritarian Nominee

Hillary and we have made history. It is a wonderful moment in American history in our slow evolution towards a more perfect union.

But of course, Donald Trump is not impressed. He, not surprisingly, thinks it's all about him.

"Donald Trump said Friday that it would "have been cool" had Hillary Clinton congratulated him for doing something in the presidential election that nobody has ever done before."

“I was curious to see whether she’d do a class act and not mention my name,” the Republican nominee said at a rally with supporters in Colorado. “Or mention it with respect, like, say, ‘I’d like to congratulate my Republican opponent for having done something that nobody has ever done in the history of politics in this nation.’”

“See, I thought she might do something like that. I thought she'd give me a big fat beautiful congratulations. If she did that, would that have been cool? Would that have been great?,” Trump said.

"Clinton spoke Thursday night after becoming the first woman in U.S. history to win a major party's presidential nomination."

And I guess, this is a year of firsts with Trump as well. He's the first candidate for dictator. The American Caesar is on the ballot.

I really like what Hillary said at the Philly bus tour yesterday:

As heckler interrupts, Clinton says founders "expected a kind of raucous debate in America. But at the end...we have to come together."

Since the late 1960s after LBJ signed the Voting Rights Act, we've been a divided country. Divided on racial lines, religious lines, gender lines, cultural lines. What the Democrats are calling for now is a new kind of national unity: the unity of post Obama's America, a diverse America, that is like Hillary puts it 'Stronger together.'

Bill Maher about the new, great Hillary ad:

"Voters don’t want America’s nicest grandma. They want the wolf with bits of grandma in its teeth. #NotoriousHRC

If you want to see what 'Stronger together' actually looks like the Dem convention is the gauge.
