This year, we must choose between two despised candidates. One is a woman who has left a trail of lies, litigation and failure everywhere she's gone. She insists that everything is good, everyone is wonderful, and that we Americans "know who we are." The other is a pompous man who is also adept at massaging the truth and faces litigation. He insists that many things are not good, and that many people are not wonderful. He, too, insists that we Americans "know who we are," and adds that we want to remain Americans.
