Fundamental to democracy is the peaceful transition of power; without that, there is Belarus. Any suggestion that a president might not respect this Constitutional guarantee is both unthinkable and unacceptable.

In a private memorandum, Abraham Lincoln wrote on August 23, 1864, “…[I]t seems exceedingly probable that this Administration will not be re-elected. Then it will be my duty to cooperate with the President-elect, as to save the Union…."

Climate change is a reality. Not addressing it is gross negligence.

Although Trump told us he was ending his remarks at the press briefing because "I have to leave for an emergency phone call," he doesn't have an emergency, I'm told. He's got politicking to do. He's speaking on two tele-events tonight.

Imagine hearing that answer about refusing to commit to a peaceful transfer of power, and then following up with a question about a pair of former British royals

There seems to be a major mismatch between the widespread belief on the left that American democracy is at stake in this election, and a candidate who calls a lid at 9:30 a.m. several days a week.

Q: "Win, lose, or draw, will you commit here today to a peaceful transition of power after the election?" @POTUS : "We're going to have to see what happens. You know that. I've been complaining very strongly about ballots and the ballot surge disaster..."
