Opinion | What Will It Take to Beat Donald Trump?

Bill Clinton and Barack Obama both campaigned for, and won, the White House on the watchword “hope.” What watchword will it take for a Democrat to win this time? My suggestion: soap. Nearly three years into Donald Trump’s presidency, America needs a hard scrub and a deep cleanse.
