Nor for I.

It should have gone the other way but didn’t. There are reasons for that. We could have exercised more control than we did over some but
the most important of them were no longer in our hands.
It was a terrible night and I either drank too much or too little. Whichever it was, it didn’t help. Deluded fool that I am, my hope that the results would be different became a belief that they would. What could have helped would have been to have had less faith that the people of the United States had already learned about and understood the direction in which the current domestic and foreign policies have been leading us and would insist that they be changed. Less of that faith would have lessened my shock but not my disappointment. I guess we “earned” what we got. One blogger wrote,
I am embarrassed to be an American today where so many people are oblivious to the damage being done to the fabric of our country and who voted for four more years of his destruction.
