Meh.

It's great to not have a scumbag get elected but it's not the place to claim "team blue won" either IMO.

Too many partisans right now thinking MORE about their "team" than what's right and wrong IMO.


I'm Center-Left and am increasingly being drawn to becoming an Independent.

Can NEVER become a Conservative but I do agree with a lot of their fiscal views, taxation notwithstanding.

The last 15 years I've argued with the far left (in college) and the far right (older friends and family) because I like to be the contrarian. It was fun!!

It's not fun anymore. Very divisive now and a bit scary TBH.

We need better ideas in this country and better candidates.



But yeah, the scumbag didn't win, so I agree it was a very good day...
