Over the weekend I made a quick trip to Denver. On two separate shared rides, sitting up front for 45 minutes, I had the chance to talk politics with people quite different from me. It reminded me of the value of face-to-face conversation, not making assumptions, and listening without trying to convince.
Throughout this campaign, Clinton has been given opportunities to convince voters she means what she says and has the grit to back it up. Time and again, she falls flat. She does what she has always done: she compromises and gravitates towards the decision that's most centrist or less controversial.
