"I'm Gonna Miss Him So Much"

I put this Hillary Clinton campaign ad, featuring President Obama stumping for the current Dem nominee, on the TV yesterday, and when I glanced over at my wife after it ended, I was surprised to see that she had tears streaming down her face. She just couldn't stop crying. When I asked her why she was so emotional, she struggled to gain her bearings, but finally said, "I'm gonna miss him so much. We'll never get another president like him again."

At that moment, it really struck me the wild disconnect between the constituency that gave the man two victories by very wide margins, and which have given him record approval ratings even as he enters his lame duck period, and the manic nonsense from the Trump crowd, who consider him the worst thing to happen to this country since polio. We've been dealing with this practically since his first inauguration, but even now I just don't get it. That said, as political ads go, this is pretty damn effective. Check it out:
