Some of us remember the debacle of ’72 when we nominated George McGovern for president. I was one of those people. We were pissed enough about the war and hated Richard Nixon enough that we thought our self-righteousness was enough to win an election.
We learned the hard way.
Now the Democratic Party once again is headed down the road of platitudes and self-rightousness.
Many of us here have been fortunate enough to see in Hillary Clinton a candidate who combined our highest aspirations and ideals, and our desperate need for a leader who can get things done — and win elections! I am proud of my vote for Hillary and I want the world to know that no matter what happens, she will always have my support.
A new generation of voters will have to learn the hard way.
