With a convincing Democratic convention behind them and buoyed by recent positive poll numbers Democrats are beginning to focus on not only electing Hillary Clinton President, but making sure a Donald Trump never arises again. This is a worthy and much-needed goal.
At the same time, Clinton supporters are wisely refusing to rest on their laurels, and are instead preparing for an unpredictable ride to the White House. In politics almost nothing can be taken for granted.
So while there is every reason to believe Mrs. Clinton can be elected, her victory must be earned. Fortunately, professional Democratic operatives seem to know this.
