Holy shit. Bernie had been saying this since the primaries. If Hillary is the candidate for the democratic party that she would lose to Trump.
The DNC let everyone down by simply picking Hillary because it was 'her turn' instead of picking a candidate that energized young voters, even much more so than Obama did in '08. Instead they go with a candidate with endless baggage, the easiest target for even the worst candidates the Republicans could throw at them. And now we have Trump. Fuck the DNC. Spineless fucking idiots got what they deserved, and the rest of us will now pay for their corrupt bumbling. If anything, I'm glad that both the Democratic and Republican parties are somewhat in flames right now. as I join the swelling sentiment in this country that we desperately need to burn this fucker down.

oh, and woke up this AM to another great thing. Voted into law off of the ballot (this was not advertised at all! DUH MEDIA!) Lawmakers in MN can NO LONGER GIVE THEMSELVES RAISES!
Seconded! I live just one state down, and hearing initiatives pass like this in the midwest reminds me of the great progressive strides we are making in places around here.This comment was edited on Nov 9, 2016, 17:40.
