PHILADELPHIA - After four days of doom and gloom in Donald Trump’s America, Democrats have a deceptively simple task to accomplish with their convention this week:

Namely, convincing broad swaths of voters that Hillary Clinton and her new running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia, possess the right mix of optimism and practicality to lead the nation for the next four years.

They begin that effort, if not on first base, then halfway down the path at least.
