The gloves came off at the Democratic convention last night.  A dangerous demagogue, they said of Donald Trump. Clueless. A con man. And maybe not sane. Tough talk. What would Hillary Clinton do in the White House? President Hillary Clinton?  We’re picturing that this hour. On the economy, social issues, foreign affairs, ISIS.  On energy, immigration, trade. What does she propose? What could she actually get done? This hour On Point, the full attack on Trump, and imagining a Hillary Clinton presidency. — Tom Ashbrook

From Tom’s Reading List

Bloomberg Politics: Clinton Running Mate Kaine Endorses Repeal of Hyde Amendment on Abortion — "Democratic vice-presidential pick Tim Kaine has privately told nominee Hillary Clinton he will support repeal of the Hyde Amendment, a 1976 provision that bans the use of federal dollars for abortion services, Clinton spokesman Jesse Ferguson and Kaine spokeswoman Amy Dudley said Tuesday."

NPR News: 'First Dude'? Why Bill Clinton Could Make A Powerful First Spouse — "If Hillary Clinton wins the White House in November, she would be the first female president of the United States. There would be a few other firsts in the family that night as well: Bill Clinton would be the first man married to a U.S. president. He would also become the first former president to become the first spouse."

TIME: What Bill Clinton Would Do in a Hillary Clinton White House — "Clinton occupies a unique place in American politics, and remains one of the greatest political minds in the party, a world-class campaigner and unrivaled strategist. The Presidents since he left office—George W. Bush and Barack Obama alike—have phoned him looking for advice. One veteran of the Obama White House said this week that he was jealous he wouldn’t be working in the same building as Bill Clinton. 'Life,' he said, 'would have been easier if we could pop over to the East Wing to run idea past Bill.'"
