Hillary Clinton rolled out the anti-Trump argument that could deliver a landslide

Hillary Clinton's campaign apparently workshopped the idea of trying to tag Donald Trump with the nickname "Dangerous Donald." It was a bit of a lame idea. 

But in her foreign policy speech this afternoon, Clinton captured the essence of that critique well — and delivered her best version yet of an argument that we're going to hear more and more of as she puts the primary against Bernie Sanders behind her and looks ahead to the general election.

The essence of the argument is simple. You may not agree with everything she says or everything she's done or will do, but you can at least be sure that a Clinton presidency won't lead to some enormous unforeseen cataclysm. With Trump, there's no such guarantee.

"There’s no risk of people losing their lives if you blow up a golf course deal," she said. "But it doesn’t work like that in world affairs. Just like being interviewed on the same episode of 60 Minutes as Putin is not the same as actually dealing with Putin."

Bottom line: "The stakes in global statecraft are infinitely higher and more complex than in the world of luxury hotels."
