Man, this really says bad, bad things about the Democratic Party. :-\ This was a clear, stark choice between a progressive, forward-thinking, unbeholden, plain-spoken candidate and a classic, white-male supremacist, patriarch figure, good guy, good fella, mansplaining, well-moneyed, slickster con man; and New York, a supposed bastion of liberalism picked the con man. Hopefully those actual Democrats, progressives, working people, principled individuals in those flyover states turn out in numbers sufficient not only to defeat the obviously rotten-to-the-core, wicked Republican Party but the self-serving, Wall Street-genuflecting, “centrist”, game-playing insiders within their own party.
