    The problem with that is that moderates couldn't get behind him because he was too far from what they wanted, assuming he could get the moderates to vote for him, he would still have had a Republican majority Congress, meaning nothing could get done, that's the real problem of a 50/50 country. As for moving harder to the left, just remember Republicans had the tea party that moved hard right and it's now falling apart after only a couple of election cycles...

    As for Corbyn, I enjoy watching Sky News and BBC News via youtube instead of CNN and Fox News in America, it would appear that the Conservatives have decided to get a majority by probably pairing with DUP, while Corbyn would have to work with SNP which is probable as it looks like the Lib Dems don't want to try and form a coalition, the story I watched said they would work together as things came up.

    No matter what it's looking pretty clear that Labour won no matter what, Brexit isn't going to be a hard Brexit after this.

      Let's put it this way: most people dislike Trump, kinda like most people dislike Clinton. The more you get to know them, the less you like them, the more you hate them. If the election was rerun today, Clinton would still lose to Trump sez a recent poll. Meanwhile Sanders is far and away the most popular politician in America. Go figure.

      Between the corporate media, the Clinton machine and the corporate Democratic Party apparatus — all of whom would rather've lost to Trump than've won with Sanders — the moderates you're talking about were more disinformed than misinformed about Sanders' real life policies.

      Clinton actually ran on there "never, ever" being the kind of guaranteed health care in the U.S. that every other industrialized democracy has. That Germany already had before the Dakotas, Montana and Washinton were even states. I don't think there's a very clear picture out there even now of what he was talking about.

      Corbyn and Sanders lost and maybe the best thing about that is that once these feckless idiots in charge right now are gone, we're going to need them in the worst way.

      When McCain/Palin were beaten, thank the stars above, their own campaign manager said "There are worse things than losing." Corbyn and Labour might see the wisdom in that right now.
