For what’s it’s worth, liberals shouldn’t get too crazy with all the “End of Normal” opinionating that’s flying around. The best thing Democrats can take away from the election is this: Yes, you inherited a shit-show, and maybe you kept things from getting worse, but right now things need to get better. We’re betting on you to get it done. Don’t forget, your opponent was a milquetoast candidate who ran a reprehensible campaign. You would have a very different result against a more capable and courageous adversary. The election was close for reasons beyond “demographics”.
