To hope or not to hope

Kevin Drum, who supports Hillary, noted this quote from her in the Saturday debate: "We don't need to be raising the false hopes of our country about what can be delivered."

I understand where Hillary Clinton is coming from. We've all had our hearts broken — she more than most of us.

I just talked with someone about the terrible legacy of the assassinations of the 1960s.

But to write off hope is a mistake.
