Clinton casts herself as the anti-Trump

In every way that matters, Hillary Clinton is the anti-Trump. Check out this list of comparisons by Steve Benen at MSNBC/Maddowblog. For example:

Trump offered fear, so Clinton explicitly rejected it. Trump said the country is coming unglued, so Clinton pitched a message of unity, cooperation, and the importance of being “stronger together.” Trump embraced empty slogans and sound-bite solutions, so Clinton emphasized expertise and qualifications.

Trump is intemperate and thin-skinned, prone to lashing out in response to perceived slights, so Clinton reminded the public about the importance of a steady hand.

“Imagine him in the Oval Office facing a real crisis. A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.
