“If the race comes down to a character contest, Mr. Trump will lose.” Nobody dislikes Joe Biden. “Americans have also seen Mr. Trump in office for 42 months, and even millions of his supporters dislike the way he conducts himself.”

“Separating politics from process in Washington is harder than scraping gum from the sidewalk in summer. But for the benefit of Ford, Kavanaugh and the confirmation process…. there should be more investigative work done….. A quick vote up or down would leave unanswered the fundamental question of a Supreme Court nominee’s character and fitness.”

“In one respect, we should be grateful for the president’s unhinged performance. No longer do we need to deliberate over his true character and beliefs. We can just give up the ghost and acknowledge, as a nation, that the president of the United States is a racist. Period. He doesn’t just sympathize with white supremacists and neo-Nazis, he agrees with them…. Every day that he remains president is a day that further diminishes our values, our basic decency, and our nation as a whole. The time has come for every American, regardless of their partisan affiliation, to demand that he relinquish his office.”

But there is no precedent for one whose character is so obviously ill-suited to the presidency.”

“Clearly, Trump’s foreign policy, if it can be called that, is to ratchet up tensions and trouble and keep the world at bay, wondering what he will do next… Trump’s character is a terrible limitation as an unpopular president, yet it has taken him to the pinnacle of power.”
