Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I could have done a post almost as long on Hillary's weaknesses, but in the end, I'm not sure how much they will matter, provided her health stays ok and she holds her own in the debates.  And we must remember that Trump is just as old as she is, and perhaps less used to the hard slog of a Presidential campaign.  That takes age out of the equation unless she has a turn.

The good thing about the Trump is that he takes the spotlight away from her weaknesses. There is almost o comparison you can make that casts him in a favourable light.  No doubt Paul Manafort is even now ginning up some "Blacks for Trump", "Latinos for Trump", "Women for Trump" and "Iraq Veterans for Trump" front organisations, and the media will give them airtime. But will anyone take them seriously?
