As Trump embarrasses the nation at every turn, people become ever more nostalgic for the days of dignity and grace.

Former President Barack Obama will raise money for the Democratic National Committee at a Los Angeles fundraiser later this month, as he continues to edge into the midterm elections.
Billed as a gala dinner, the June 28 event will be Obama’s first for the DNC this year. Tickets start at $2,700 for general admission, rising to $100,000 for premium seating, a photo reception, membership to the DNC’s National Finance Committee and other benefits, according to an invitation obtained by POLITICO.
Obama, who raised money for the DNC last year, has made several endorsements to date in the midterm elections — including Sen. Dianne Feinstein in next Tuesday’s California primary. He is expected to intensify his political activities as the general election draws nearer.
An Obama aide said that in addition to the DNC fundraiser, Obama will also headline a fundraiser in California for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and raise money for the National Democratic Redistricting Committee.
If I were a Democratic candidate I would attempt to get my photo taken with Obama every chance I got.
As this Trump Administration continues careening down the tracks to its ultimate destruction, the Obama presidency shines like a beacon of decency and professionalism by comparison.
By the time that we reach November having Barack Obama show up to fundraise for you will be worth millions of extra dollars, and millions of extra votes.
