Tuesday/ death, taxes and Hillary?

Stephen Colbert’s Late Show last night started with an homage (of sorts) to Hillary, in a psychedelic video short. Death, taxes and Hillary was the tagline .. but it is not such a sure thing at all that Hillary will be elected Madam President in November.  (It was a historic moment today at the Democratic National Convention when, for the first time, a woman was officially nominated for President).   Incredibly, candidate Trump got a little bump in his poll numbers despite a somewhat rag-tag Republican convention.   In some ‘battleground states’ they are even, say the polls.
