    I really hope the Democratic party learns a lesson from this.

    I'll give them a few days to get their whining, tantrums, blaming, shaming, etc out of their system. However, they need to realize that this childish behavior is not constructive and do something constructive, like listen to their constituency instead of their echo chamber.

    For the record, I did not vote for Trump.

      You see, the Democrats were supposed to be the party of the working class, just like Labor was supposed to be in Britain. But they were not. So the working class gave them a major "fuck you" in both countries. It's not too hard to see if you're not blinded by the millions you get from "campaign contributions" and "speaking fees".

      The problem is, the "fuck you" vote usually doesn't lead where it's supposed to.

        Yes, the populist vote can be the most volatile because it is the result of a pent up frustration by being ignored. It provides a sense of mandate to an angry electorate.

          What they don't realize is they will still be ignored and just get tossed a crumb or two when things get close to the breaking point.

          whether their crucial lessons are learned — truly internalized — or ignored in favor of self-exonerating campaigns to blame everyone else.

          I'm not holding my breath. It's been my observation that nothing changes,and the things the 99% want are never discussed by any party.

            I feel the same way, unfortunately. Maybe, just maybe this guy is headstrong enough to unclog the logjam in Washington. Any movement at this point would be an improvement to the status quo. It may galvanize good people to start acting responsibly. I don't know. This is a real outsider at the helm.

      Your democrats fucked up. They had a good candidate but rigged it against him. Clinton had no chance, Trump was simply better in every sense of the word. This wasn't a vote for Trump it was a vote of discontent with a corrupt system

        I didn't vote for Clinton either. If Sanders was running against Trump, I would have picked Sanders. If Rand Paul was running against Hillary, I would have voted for Paul. My vote went towards the hope that maybe this was the year a 3rd party would get the all-important 5% of the popular vote that gets federal campaign funding.
