    It didn't help the Dems nominated someone under investigation by the FBI but I really don't think any of it mattered much at all. No one has liked or trusted Hilary Clinton for 25 years. Her approval ratings always went up whenever she was out of the public eye and whenever she started running for something they tanked again. The only race she ever won was the NY Senate race where the Dems could run an actual donkey and still win. She lost a national primary she was gifted to an absolute lightweight who (in the words of her husband) should have been "carrying their bags". Then she lost to Trump, who was apparently the worst candidate in the history of everything.

    Perhaps, it's just time to acknowledge that Clinton was, and is, a terrible politician who runs awful campaigns and has never accomplished anything outside of marrying Bill Clinton. Maybe a lot of it is just that simple.
    It was a pretty close finish. I think the scandals and Wikileaks helped a lot. Trump attacked her aggressively with that info.

    I'd give Bernie an assist as well. The Dems not picking him had grave consequences.

            There's a pretty good argument to be made that turning over every presidential election to California and New York wouldn't exactly be good for the country as a whole either.....
            There lies the problem. There isn't a system that ensures the entire country is best represented with an elected leader. But the fairest way to get to that leader, is to count each vote equally.

            The current system is like LeBron leading the league in allstar votes, yet the starting nod going to JaVale McGee

              Nilanka, its been this way forever and its not the first time this has happened. Its probably never going to change. You view is great if you live in one of those highly populated areas but most of the GDP in the US is generated away from Cali and NY. There are pros and cons about the setup, no doubt. If the result was flipped no one would be complaining though, would they?

              Possibly but what really happened was like LeBron campaigning in his home state for Hillary and her still losing that state. Wait, it's not "like" that happened, that actually happened.

                  My hangover is killing me. One of Trump's promises of ripping up NAFTA will have profound consequences for Ontario/Canada.
                  You guys keep voting for Kathleen Wynne and McGuinty and now you're worried Donald Trump is going to hurt Ontario's economy? Jesus Christ. It would be funny if it weren't so sad....

                      Because honoring the system is only important when taking Trump to task for whining about potentially not honoring the system.

                          • Food for thought. I have very little patience for political correctness, myself.

                            Trump won because of a cultural issue that flies under the radar and remains stubbornly difficult to define, but is nevertheless hugely important to a great number of Americans: political correctness.

                            More specifically, Trump won because he convinced a great number of Americans that he would destroy political correctness.
                            The segment of the electorate who flocked to Trump because he positioned himself as "an icon of irreverent resistance to political correctness" think it means this: smug, entitled, elitist, privileged leftists jumping down the throats of ordinary folks who aren't up-to-date on the latest requirements of progressive society.

                            Example: A lot of people think there are only two genders—boy and girl. Maybe they're wrong. Maybe they should change that view. Maybe it's insensitive to the trans community. Maybe it even flies in the face of modern social psychology. But people think it. Political correctness is the social force that holds them in contempt for that, or punishes them outright.
                            There is a cost to depriving people of the freedom (in both the legal and social senses) to speak their mind. The presidency just went to the guy whose main qualification, according to his supporters, is that he isn't afraid to speak his.

                            • Another good one at Reason today..... conclusion.

                              Now the left will again blame everyone but themselves. After all they didn't vote for Trump. Paul Krugman went on a Twitter tirade about focus on the email controversy "killing the planet." There are countless examples on social media of the blame going everywhere but at the problems with their own candidate. Democracy itself is at stake, because their candidate didn't win. That's not how democratic societies work. Hillary Clinton was a deeply flawed candidate, with a bloody history on the foreign policy front and the unmistakable stench of corruption surrounding her long career. Clinton campaign emails reveal they favored Trump, Ted Cruz, and Ben Carson, as "pied piper" candidates it would be easier to defeat. Clinton's people knew they would do best in November if they could make the race about the other candidate's perceived flaws or unfitness. Fortunately, perhaps, for democracy, it didn't work. If the Trump presidency animates Democrats and whatever Republicans in Congress remain anti-Trump in 2017 to reassert the power of Congress as a co-equal branch of government and not a rubber stamp and whipping boy for the executive branch, that could move the U.S. political system back toward a republican form where government power is limited, rather than concentrated in the power of the presidency

                                No, let them all keep doubling down on the "they're all racists" stuff. It only helps the good guys.
