13. It's going to have to go in the "lessons learned" column.

I agree with the premise that Trump was not expected to win.

And the more we learn, the more we know that he wouldn't have, without his pal Putin pulling the strings.

Hindsight is 20/20, as the saying goes.

We go nuts when someone like Mitch McConnell tries to ram through back door deals n TrumpCare, when he giggles over his mission being Obama as a one term President. We go nuts when Paul Ryan practices granny starving.

And I am not for a second suggesting that we sink to that level.

But if we keep doing what we do, the Republicans will keep doing what they do.

The term "We are better than that" has a debatable level of value.

We need to decide how we are going to be "better than" Republicans while sending them home to their districts in search of new employment. They fight dirty. Taking the "high road" with someone who fights dirty doesn't always guarantee victory. It sometimes means that you are on the high road, and you've been thoroughly boned.

I don't have the answers. Wish I did. I am sure Obama wishes now that he had brought the hammer down when he had the opportunity.
