This author and blogger is totally shocked and stunned, and needs time to absorb the victory of Donald Trump in the Presidential Election of 2016.
So over time, I will provide detailed analysis over what has happened.
But I can say that I weep for our nation, and the body blow of the Trump victory over the legacy of Barack Obama, and the danger presented to the New Deal of Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Great Society of Lyndon B. Johnson.
I also weep for the harm it does to our children of all races, and to girls and women, and to ethnic and racial minorities, and to our economy and international affairs.
This is truly a major turning point, and a likely constitutional crisis far greater than presented by Richard Nixon four decades ago.
That is all for now and for today.
I apologize for being so wrong in my prognostications, but share that with the overwhelming number of others who study and discuss and write about American politics!
Today, shed tears over what has happened, and then the struggle to do what can be done to lessen the impact of Donald Trump must begin tomorrow!
