    Yes T.J. I fully agree; even if Hillary wins, then there is still an huge battle about the Supreme Court, as well related to any of Bernie's suggested items which Hillary adopted. Certainly it won't be an "progressive" 4 years. Let alone the election coming at that time in 2020.

    Tony, I doubt if any "win" by either one will improve this country; like you said the "polarization" is set in "stone" and gets only worse. You can't run an country and make "progress" in the world, if there is only in-fighting all the time as well way too many 'ego's and "money hungry" idiots who think they run the show..

    Have faith that youth is the future and if their votes gets some bad politicians out, maybe other ineffective politicians will say, maybe I need to show up and actually work.

    A renewed sense of compromise would help us all. Obama said that yesterday, even when you're right you still need to compromise.

    Yes T.J. you are absolutely right.

    Chet, To answer your question. Yes. He can win in a landslide. In the only way that counts, he won convincingly.

    Not really...

    He won Pennsylvania by 44,292 votes, Michigan by 10,704, and Wisconsin by 22,748. From a purely numbers standpoint - Donald "won" the Presidency by 77, 744 votes. With millions of votes cast in each of those states, I would hardly say his margin of victory was convincing.

    If Democrats in those three states decided to get off their ass and vote (or not cast a protest vote for someone who had zero chance of winning the election) then we would be talking about President Hillary Clinton and not President Donald.

    It's true Donald won the electoral college, but he still lost the popular vote by three million votes. That's why he will always be trying to convince himself that he isn't an illegitimate President. He knows he's illegitimate, which is why he's so focused on creating a mirage of his "historic" victory in November.

    Sometimes they .... no they don't. One way matters and he figured it out and delivered. End of story. What has the DNC done since ? Quite close to nothing. Those near wins in 3 states were just wins. Trump has been seen carrying around a map showing his electoral landslide. In the future it will get edited to just landslide.

    Additionally I have also said that Trump did not plan nor try to win the presidency. He reaffirmed that talking about Comey and Hillary's campaign. He said the Democrats lost an election that they should have won. That was played on the news tonight about Trump commenting on Comey's firing. That can mean that Trump had no illusion or plan of winning the election. He won the election as I had said and described since the beginning, through charisma. The misunderstood and mysterious but proven and dependable charisma. Any objective analysis totally supports my explanation and in fact there is no support of any kind to show that Trump campaigned positively to win the election.

    Chet -- I'll admit that some people like you might find him charismatic...like when he tells Megyn Kelly that she has "blood coming out of her whatever" or so charismatically referring to Carly Fiorina: 'Look at that face!' he cries. 'Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?!' Then there's that "fat slob" Rosy O'Donnell who he threatened to sue: "I'd like to take some money out of her fat-ass pockets." Wow, what a macho man. So charismatic.

    Or telling Billy Bush:

    "I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn't get there, and she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she's now got the big phony tits and everything...I'm automatically attracted to beautiful [women]—I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star they let you do it. You can do anything ... Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything."

    Or when he attacked the gold star mother of U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan for just standing there quietly holding back her grief on the stage at the Democratic Convention.

    Wow, watching all these Trump antics, "how charismatic" says the unemployed coal miner. "Yeah I have to vote for that guy. He's got charisma."

    Or maybe, just maybe, they voted for him because the authoritarian bully promised to make coal king again and bring back their jobs. And they believed him.

    Yes absolutely correct; but yeah that is what you get if by stupid 1800's laws you elect an "un-vetted mental patient" who knows nothing about running an government, nor knows this country's history, nor knows anything of what is outside of this country, except may be what is involved to milk an investor or sell hotel's or buildings to billionaires and can't think any further than an 7 year old. I think if he gets prosecuted then the proper punishment should be that gets an underground job in an coal mine for life without an dust mask. That will cure his "charisma" Ha ha.

    Chet -- On your point about Trump not wanting to win, I'll stand by my blog post: There is a Method to Donald Trump's "Madness" Democrats Need to Take Seriously

    My whole life is about winning. I don't lose often. I almost never lose. – Donald Trump

    Not only that, he'll be a formidable candidate for re-election in 2020 unless the Russian connections take him down earlier.

    Schmidt , You still don't understand nor do you even try to understand the clinical definition of charisma. It has nothing to do with nice. It is an unexplained compelling attraction. The person can be a complete asshole as in the case of Hitler and Mussolini but followers are attracted to them. They can be murders and torturers but still have the mysterious capability of charisma. Educate yourself. Please. Charisma has given the world some of the most despicable leaders. All because of ignorance and stubborn elitism.

    Schmidt, Look at this very thread how I predicted Trump could win. And the negative flak I got. Jaredsxtn said I was from an alternate universe. But I explained it and I was dead on. Charisma. People even lied to pollsters they were so embarrassed to say they were supporting Trump but they were supporting Trump. They lied because of charisma. I said it before it was revealed.

    Chet, Can you explain what you mean by charisma as it relates to Trump?

    wwjd, The clinical psychological definition of charisma is that it is an unexplained compelling attraction that people have for a certain individual. It is not observable definable characteristics but simply a compelling attraction. Can't be learned or duplicated just is. Regarding Trump when he started to campaign I noticed an unexplainable excitement in people who would in no way benefit from his policies. I identified his charisma and right away said he would be a very formidable candidate. I said he couldn't be defeated by attacking him, it would only make him stronger. The supporters of a charismatic person have a maternal parental connection with their object. I stressed that here and was subject to the most derogatory comments. As the republican candidates fell one by one I stressed that a negative campaign would not phase him. He could do nothing to lose. Remember that charismatic does not mean swell friendly best liked , it means liked and supported for no apparent reason. Hitler possessed it as well as other despicable hated dictators. As soon as Trump started campaigning I said he was potentially very dangerous because his slogan was popular and should have been Hillary's "Lots of good paying jobs and make America great again" and he was charismatic. I maintained that throughout the campaign and this very thread was posted on Oct 28 and I said the conditions existed for a Trump landslide victory. I explained Hillary being ahead in the polls because people were too embarrassed to tell pollsters they supported Trump. But charisma gave him their support. Charisma gave Trump the election. An objective look at what charisma really is has only one conclusion. Charisma elected a man that did everything possible to lose an election. His spending, actions, words, history, mannerisms, lies are all indicative of not a chance of winning the presidency. One of his first candidate pronouncements was he would keep US wages low to be competitive with world labor. Within two weeks he reversed that to lots of good paying jobs. He could do no wrong. He operated under the protective armor of charisma.
