100 Words -- Will The Past Be Prologue?

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton both have long-festering legal problems dogging their campaigns. Trump is being sued by former students of a failed real estate school. Clinton is under investigation for using a private e-mail server while Secretary of State.  Both are there because of who they are. Trump is an inveterate huckster. He can’t stop over-selling himself. Clinton runs with her shields up. She lives in a Faulknerian world where the past is not dead, it’s not even the past. When cornered, Trump attacks. Clinton defends. Is this how they will govern? One way or another, we’ll find out.
