    Vegas, baby, yeah!
    I'm just going to chock this up to being angry, and justifiably so. No strikes, but random message edits will commence.

    All the market indexes going down since this was announced too. I think people pretty much get how dangerous this is.

    With McCain on sidelines, and counting Pence, Trump is holding the cards with a 51 to 49 count.

    Only hope is a couple like Collins, Flake, etc displaying a profile in courage to avoid this disaster. Not holding my breathe.

    Hillary won Oregon where I voted, so why are you gentlemen attacking me? And tagging me with your comments?

    Frankly, I am surprised that your conduct is allowed here.

    For the record, this is the result of horrible failures of the DNP and it's defective candidate. But that is history at this point that we have already debated ad nasenaum.

    Just as bad as Trump, right? Your attitude "Hillary is a defective candidate", so I am going to encourage everyone to let a 1,000,000 more defective candidate to win is working so well.

    Same attitude as in 2000, and unless the far left drops their purity tests, it will happen again. The GOP stays in power because when it comes to voting, they support the candidate from their party, even if they are too extreme for them. The Democrats/Progressives are too worried about purity tests in general election and are masters of cutting off their noses to spite their faces.

    Support Progressive Candidates in Primaries. Support them in Liberal districts. But in many areas, a moderate candidate is the ONLY hope to win.

    I won't for Sinema in the primary, but if she wins, I will vote for her in the general.. On a scale of 1-100, where 1 is liberal and 100 is conservative, she is a 55. But her Republican opponent will be a 95 or greater. Sinema won't be perfect, and I will cuss her out like I do now, but a 55 is a hell of a lot better than a 95

    Yeah, I second that. It's water under the bridge. Comey probably had the most impact on the election than a non-HRC vote from a state that went Clinton.

    You should start helping Sinema now. Kennedy’s announcement is going to cause millions of dollars of spending from those right wing judicial watch fringe groups to be spent against her. Now is not the time to dance with a no-hoper.

    I usually don't venture into this part of the board, not sure how this will fly but I thought it was funny. Hopefully provides a laugh for somebody before they come back to reality.

    Comey had a huge impact on the election but somehow this seems to have been buried, pushed aside, with Trump's attacks on the FBI.
