I wouldn't use the term divided to describe the dissonance of the American people. I would use the term "shattered."
The neocons have split. Some have rallied behind Trump, whole others like Glenn Beck and the Mormons have shied away.
The liberals have split. Neoliberals are going down in flames with Hillary's downfall, while AfterBerners and people farther to the left get flack for failing to support Hillary.
On top of it all, only half the nation voted. Many of those who didn't are currently protesting the President-elect.
The democratic establishment and liberal wrecking-balls like Bernie have yet to dust themselves off and determine a pecking order.
Honestly, the only groups that seem relatively unified are the upcoming GOP establishment and the alt-right.
This election has forced many people to find strange bedfellows and Trump's administration will carry that legacy, imo.
Despite the fact that Trump is already massively unpopular, I think the Dems will need a very strong leader to unite the Left and take the White House in 2020.
Scytale; yes I fully agree; this country is in an super mess and lacks real leaders who live in 2016 and have an worldwide education about governing; also an total overhaul is needed for the Constitution, in order to be able to govern with sensible tools, instead of total screwed up billions costing "rigged" elections with ridiculous results as well stupid gun laws and other laws/rules dating from before 1800. What about "vetting" an person BERORE he/she wants to be President??; an Muslim who wants to enter the country is screened from top to bottom, why not a "person" who wants the highest job in the country. No one knows his tax record, or exactly his holdings or foreign connections and holdings; all law suits against him; scrutiny on all his bankruptcy's and a billion tax deductable loss? All the holdings of his kids, all the liens against his buildings and himself, all his debts, all his bank records including foreign. Etc etc. Nothing was "vetted" at all; is this country really that stupid???
So we just wait until he's in the saddle and then may be we find out "things" and have to go through a million procedures and suits to get him out, at tremendous cost to the taxpayer. Very smart indeed!!!
