37. We're not going to agree
because essentially I believe that yelling mandate is so broad as to be useless. I'll go further than that: I think it's bullshit when the repukes do it, and I don't think it's anymore valid this time. Why? It's not so simple as you make out. Have we inched in a more liberal direction? Yes. Are more people rejecting the pukes? For sure. As for your suggesting that I skipped a few points, well, in a way that was my point. You skipped more than your share to, and shaded things like Bernie's election in Vermont and Whitehouse's in RI, being part of a national mandate. You left out the marriage stuff and the reason why SD's abortion legislation failed. In other words, there's more than one way to interpret the election results, but a mandate for liberalism? Not yet.
