People don't change much at 70 years.

He's had 70 years to practice the bluster.

Lifetime habits of living are very hard to break, even though daughter, wife, sons, advisors, handlers may prompt and otherwise work on him to "soften".

You have to wonder if Corey L's signing with CNN is a well-timed

plant by The Donald and Corey L himself.

Sorry you interpreted my comment so personally.

You are, of course, wrapped up in your daughter's present loss.
You are entitled to do that.

I, looking on from afar, and having lived too long and seen and suffered many losses, both politically and in life, take a longer view.
When all is said and done, what's the alternative?
Live to fight another day.
Peace.

Getting over losing an election is part of the maturing process.

It has happened to us all.
Whether we like it or not, life does go on.
We may learn to not invest emotionally so heavily in another's political fortunes.
That may not be a bad thing.

True, one would not cash out one's entire saving, but one may wish or need

to sell in order to diversify within a retirement program.

My spouse received all retirement funding in company stock. Obviously, one doesn't want all eggs in one basket; must diversify for long-range protection.
Doubt that this is a unique situation.

Think of those retiring at the end of the month, for example.

For those that can wait, we know that the markets will recover, over time.
But some are not in a position to wait for recovery, for one reason or another.

This is also the main reason Social Security should not ever be privatized. - Too much risk for those unable to afford the buffets of the stock market.

Many European treaties will need to be renegotiated.

This will take more time and doing than anyone realizes, especially those most involved - the British citizens.
