19. This is good to see, but let's make sure it doesn't tip back...

...I think Clinton has gotten into the swing of things, and now knows how to express her message so that it resonates, and makes everyone feel included, and part of a real movement with real power. Even those who are currently on the fence and thinking of going with Trump. I think, now, that she and her super team can change minds willing to be changed.

But we still have 90 odd days to go. And neither the Republicans, nor the media they control, nor Trump play fair. They will try every dirty trick in the book--including, as we've seen, getting Russians to hack us. They will, undoubted do their best to shove the cameras off Trump's errors and onto something they can blow out of all proportion in the Clinton campaign or among her voters.

Trump won't necessarily be all that much of a help because he is a loose cannon and can shoot himself in the foot without warning. But we still have to be alert and ready with water buckets to put out the fires these arsonists will try to start. Mr. Khan, brave gentleman, has given us momentum through August. We need to find other stories and ways of carrying that momentum through September and October. We can do this!
