First of all, can we congratulate ourselves for surviving that final debate between Donald J. Trump and Joe Biden? And while I’m at it, let’s congratulate the two septuagenarians. Compared with the last debate, Trump was remarkably tranquil, though I had no idea what he was saying 90% of the time (e.g., what was that stuff about Biden and “tiny windows”?). As for Biden, he was coherent. Whew! All in all, it was a bit boring—a huge compliment in this case.

Of course, this magic moment won’t last. All signs indicate that Trump will not go gently into that good night, should he lose the election. Trump has said (followed dutifully by Mike Pence) that he can’t promise a “peaceful” transition should he lose. And already, this election is well on its way to being the most litigated in history.
