There were any number of things that went through my head last night. It had been a long time since i opened a bottle of champagne at 4 AM. I am of course pleased with the outcome of the election and frankly, amazed. Politically, it was the single most remarkable night I have ever witnessed.
He was not my first choice by any means but America wanted real change- they wanted an outsider. They voted for the repudiation of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
Trump’s victory speech was as humble and contrite as it was and I thought it was entirely appropriate. It made for a good start. The left is going to see a different Trump than they expect to see. No one has been bombed yet. There have been no declarations of war. I am hopeful but not starry eyed. I expect Trump to do things that irritate me as he definitely has liberal inclinations.
Still, it was a stunning night. Keeping both houses of Congress and taking the Presidency was more than I could have imagined. But it is not them time to stick this in the faces of people we know. The media and politicians? – that’s another story.
Today, I do not gloat and I thank everyone for spending time on this blog- especially those on the left.
