Primary’s end

· long story short

Just a quick note as we end this primary season:
Whatever happens from here on out, this is a primary that truly tested the nominee and left him and the party far stronger than they were when the process started up.
Too many times over the last several years, it’s felt like the Democratic Party was a bunch of well intentioned fumblers. Sabotaging themselves and each other. Misreading the public. Misplaying the media.
It could all easily come crashing down again before November, but today at least, the party and its major candidates strike me by and large as smart, serious, disciplined, mature politicians, playing to win.
