Democrats seeking electoral advantage from this crisis are in an untenable position. Even in suboptimal circumstances, it is hard to see where any case can be made for mismanagement by the administration.
It is time the intelligent Right deprived the moronic Left of the ability to swaddle their socialistic cynicism and defeatism in the great and misapplied legacy of Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Democratic Party bosses are sending an infirm and elderly mouse to bell a big, tawny, roaring cat. Anyone can see how it will end.

President Trump has turned a public health challenge into an invitation for more temperate political discourse that his opponents will continue to scorn at their peril.
