Now What?

Artist: Miles Davis

Tune: So What?

My depression is lifting. I have read and heard a lot of stuff. There is some degree of finger pointing, which is normal and to be expected. Now someone needs to do the autopsy. What happened and why? No, Hillary Clinton wasn’t a perfect candidate. Do we need to run a perfect candidate, Barack Obama, all the time in order to win a national election? Obama was so good that the GOP had to make up stuff – Born in Kenya, was a Muslim, hates America, etc. 

I have been watching Dallas Cowboys games all this week. With modern technology, you don’t have to listen to the news if you don’t want to. Ever. No MSNBC. No FOX News. No CNN. It was necessary in order for me to decompress. I needed to reassess.  

So, we have been through this before. Progressives have lost elections which they (we) were supposed to win (see John Kerry verses George W. Bush). Where do we go from here? What do we need to do, not just to win an election, but to truly help the American people?
