I agree. The Democrats chose Hillary over Bernie, a big mistake that just cost them the election. Can't feel too sorry for them.

Sometimes when you fly too close to the sun you get burned.

Regarding the premium increase, premiums were increasing at 25% a year well before Obamacare.

Intended or not it is worth a chuckle.

Anyhow her emails FBI nexus, whether justified are not, reinforced the view that she is corrupt.

Well, we don't elect Kings or Queens. There are three branches of gov. and the country will not disintegrate.

Breathe, everyone.

Three branches? Two of them are Republican-controlled now and the third will reflect Repub views shortly. This will be untenable for the next maybe six years. The only saving grace may be that many, many in the Senate and House very much dislike him and they (hopefully) may behave as if Democrats for the needed checks and balances.

Prediction:
Trump is 200% a one-term prez.

Indeed I am quite sure that the management who shipped all those jobs overseas were Democrats - Not!

I am glad the campaign is over.

There is too much work to be done to continue wallowing in a largely media generated hysteria.

The transportation and power infrastructures need massive updating, health care snafus have to be fixed, trade and foreign policy don't sit still for hand wringing.

It's going to take all of us to get it done - there are those who want to keep crying, that's fine, just roll up your sleeves and cry while you work.

Yes!

But Trump made it one of his issues.

He projected that the leaders of both parties were in collusion and pointed to the Bernie rebellion.

Only Schumer can save us now if no blue dogs capitulate.
