Hillary Clinton made presidential campaign history yesterday. After acknowledging that the race had been pretty ugly lately, she said this:

It makes you want to turn off the news. It makes you want to unplug the internet or just look at cat GIFs. Believe me, I get it. In the last few weeks I’ve watched a lot of cats do a lot of weird and interesting things. But we have a job to do, and it’ll be good for people and for cats.

Hillary Clinton will be good for cats! That just earned her two extra votes in the Drum household—and millions more across the country. It’s a brilliant political strategy since cats are well known as top notch influencers.

And speaking of cats, I love this picture. Do these guys look like lords of their domain, or what? Don’t even think about messing with them in their own house, capiche?

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily bluster—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?
