And the Democrats were so arrogant that they believed that the chauvinistic American people were ready to be led by a female when it was a miracle that they'd just voted in a leader that wasn't white for two terms. They pushed their luck with Hillary but they'd made a rod for their own back in that Obama would've been such a hard act to follow with a middle aged white male candidate. Hillary was a gamble that didn't pay off and it's incredible that she managed to get more votes than Trump overall considering she was such a tarnished candidate. Cambridge Analytics did a fantastic job for Trump and the rest is history but they've been set back decades in progressive thinking. I won't see another minority or a female as leader in the US in my lifetime, it's back to crusty old white men from here on.
The only way I can see US politics being redeemed is with a viable 3rd party.
