Senator Amy Klobuchar on CNN

When I watched Monday night’s CNN town hall in New Hampshire with Senator Amy Klobuchar, I’m reminded of the old saying that Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, only backwards and in high heels. Trump riffs for an hour or more, saying nothing, and  he wins the undying and uncritical adoration of his base. Klobuchar answered questions for an hour. She spoke with substance, humor, knowledge of the issues, honesty — no to free four year college for everyone — depth and integrity. She’s also quick on her feet, and I could see her on the stage debating Trump, turning back some of his casually nasty remarks without stooping to his gutter level.

Will it be enough, for her or for another Democratic candidate of substance? I hope so.
