It's good someone out here is. The Dems. sure are falling down on the job that's for sure.

The Dems are pretty blown out of the water. The painful irony is that this election was expected to blow the GOP out of the water and there was no recourse or fall back position. I think the Dems are doing as best as they can given they need to dust themselves off and stand back up. One big problem is - who is the leader of the party? Sanders? Schumer? Who? plus they have control of nada except veto of a 60 votes needed in the Senate situation which apparently Mitch is ready to make a simple majority vote of 51. I think the only recourse right now are about three things - the remnants of the Dems who are in actuality the dominant party representing the majority of people, but we know all about that, plus the media which is decidedly against Trump, plus all the protests and actions by ordinary citizens. Add all that together and there really is good opposition.
