From there, Hillary moved on to Manchester where she held a town hall addressing gun violence and attended an early childhood education event.

Sometimes the less said the better. The Today Show event probably went as most of us expected and hoped it would not. Moderators set a tone, and the tone was tense. It was not only the questions from Guthrie that irritated. Geist was from the sidelines. He succeeded in getting an audience member to ask Hillary to contrast her plan for the economy with that of Bernie Sanders. Hillary refused that question and said she preferred to wait until the debate to mark contrasts between her plans and those of other Democrats in the race. There was no denying a contentious atmosphere to the televised event.
Generally we look forward to these televised events and want to watch them more than once. In the case of this much publicized town hall, I, for one, was relieved to see it end. In the final analysis, Hillary handled everything with her classic grace, intelligence, patience, and, as needed, reserve.
No matter how the people at the Today Show act, there are some in the media who send their love and support in unexpected ways. I was happy last night that Showtime finally brought back Homeland and The Affair. I was even happier when this little guy came running down the Brooklyn street to his dad. Trevor Solloway is the younger son of one of the main characters in The Affair, Noah Solloway. Here is how he looked in last night's season opener.
