Higher ground?

A recent Washington Post article (Monitor front page, Dec. 8) suggesting that Sen. Al Franken’s resignation puts Democrats on “higher ground” leaves a bit of ambiguity with regard to the relative term “higher ground.” It would be logical to assume that the term “higher ground” should be considered relative to a low point. For example, consider the low point established by the Clintons several years ago. That level would probably be close to the level of the Mariana Trench. So, in relative terms, the newly established level of “higher ground” would probably be close to the level of Badwater Basin in Death Valley.
