Must Read: The third time The Atlantic has ever endorsed a candidate - and a scathing indictment of Donald Trump
These concerns compel us, for the third time since the magazine’s founding, to endorse a candidate for president. Hillary Rodham Clinton has more than earned, through her service to the country as first lady, as a senator from New York, and as secretary of state, the right to be taken seriously as a White House contender. She has flaws (some legitimately troubling, some exaggerated by her opponents), but she is among the most prepared candidates ever to seek the presidency. We are confident that she understands the role of the United States in the world; we have no doubt that she will apply herself assiduously to the problems confronting this country; and she has demonstrated an aptitude for analysis and hard work.
Donald Trump, on the other hand, has no record of public service and no qualifications for public office. His affect is that of an infomercial huckster; he traffics in conspiracy theories and racist invective; he is appallingly sexist; he is erratic, secretive, and xenophobic; he expresses admiration for authoritarian rulers, and evinces authoritarian tendencies himself. He is easily goaded, a poor quality for someone seeking control of America’s nuclear arsenal. He is an enemy of fact-based discourse; he is ignorant of, and indifferent to, the Constitution; he appears not to read.
It’s not who wins the night, it’s who wins the morning after, and it’s not Trump and Pence

Waking up to: COMMENT on Daily Kos
A sympathetic utterance by Hillary has one line which out of context is being used against her:I woke up to this story and read the following on the website that broke the story. Talk about bias!
In her remarks, she derisively wrote off Sanders supporters and made other comments that would draw attention when the audio became public.

“The genius of Donald Trump is to make sure he follows the law ... and politically he has said he is going to change these laws,” Christie said. He added that Trump should only be “taking a bow for the fact that he has said, well before this story came out, that we need to change the tax laws because they are harming the American people every day.”Genius, apparently, was the main adjective that the Trump campaign was using in its talking points to handle the story.
Appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani used the same descriptor when talking about the candidate.
“My response is, he’s a genius. ... Absolute genius,” Giuliani said. Huffington Post.

Waking up to Huffington Post
- Few Republicans were keen on discussing Trump’s debate performance or defending the personal dramas he has reignited. McConnell bluntly swept aside questions about Trump.
- “This is not something that I am going to discuss today,” the Senate leader told one reporter who asked about Trump’s impact on Senate races.
- Pressed by another reporter about why he would not speak about Trump, McConnell replied, “Because I choose not to.”
- When Ryan was asked to comment on Trump’s attacks Tuesday on Machado, the Wisconsin Republican demurred: “I was working out and working this morning. I didn’t watch.”
- Embattled GOP senators found various ways to avoid evaluating Trump’s debate turn.
- “I didn’t see it, guys. I was on an airplane,” Florida’s Marco Rubio told reporters.
- “I have no idea. I’m not a pundit,” Wisconsin’s Ron Johnson said.
