To Change, or Not to Change

The good news is that the presidential election is less than a month away. The bad news is that the onslaught of negative campaigning will continue until then. This past week, in conversations with friends and family, the one item that Democrats, Republicans and Independents can agree on is that we can't wait for this election to be over and done. The daily coverage of personality and problems of both major presidential candidates is unrelenting, making the election feel as though it is never-ending.

The Understudy

I hope Donald Trump was watching his running mate during the vice presidential debate this week. If so, I expect that he learned some valuable lessons.

The debate between Sen. Tim Kaine, D., Va., and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, R., was held at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia.

Kaine and Pence sat a table with the moderator, CBS' Elaine Quijano, who was rarely visible to viewers at home.

Winning Versus Leading

Labor Day has passed, school is back in session, businesses are planning for the new year, presidential nominees are set, and it's time for the presidential candidates to sprint to the end.

With two months to go, every move becomes more important and every error more painful for Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. While their immediate goal may be to win the election, their real goal should be to lead the American people after the election. This requires that, in addition to winning 270 electoral votes, the next president must also receive a majority of the popular vote.
