A Campaign of Firsts

Hillary's unprecedented nomination and campaign got trumped. But she more than lost her place in history. True, she was the first nominated woman to run--certainly a legitimate achievement. But what about Trump? A guy who had never run for public office gets nominated for president in a political party whose leadership opposes him and never supports him, runs a campaign the likes of which had never been seen before against an astonishing array of opposition from the press, the entertainment industry, domestic and foreign tycoons and wins.
Her achievement was considerable but it casts a shadow when compared to Trump's.
