“From the fullness of the heart, the mouth speaks.” Sen. Tim Kaine quoted from the Gospel of Matthew during the vice presidential debate at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. Nielsen estimated that only about 37 million viewers watched across nine channels carrying the debate on Tuesday. Gov. Mike Pence made an ill-conceived, but viral remark and only squeaked out a debate win by distancing himself from his boorish presidential nominee, Donald Trump.
Kaine championed his boss, the first woman nominated by a major party for president, while the results of the debate were spun as if polls didn’t favor the Democratic ticket. In an election year of absurdity, how do we sort out the drama for audiences under 18?
No need for panic. Acclaimed children’s author Cynthia Levinson is on the case with facts in a meticulously researched biography Hillary Rodham Clinton: Do All the Good You Can.
