These elections brought reality in front of us. We believed we were in a country where citizens would not vote for a candidate temperamentally unsound, racially biased, and misogynist. We also believed in the political discourse of mass media that constantly supported Clinton. It turns out that we all were wrong. The "silent majority" of angry, white working class voters was louder this time.
This Thanksgiving weekend, as I watched events unfold abroad, I was most grateful that the foolishness of election time is over.
It was one year ago today that Hillary Clinton announced plans to suspend her campaign for the Democratic nomination, and urged her supporters to unite behind Barack Obama.
