Comments: Congrats!

Some were surprised that he was more gracious after the election than during the campaign. I expected nothing less. But with magazine covers of Trump's head superimposed with a mushroom cloud, I can't blame voters for thinking his election represented the first step on a yellow-brick road to the apocalypse.

We have heard the people sing,
Singing the songs of angry men.

All they want is a revitalized economy and a fair price for stuff they have to buy, from healthcare to college educations for their kids.

The Obamacare experiment wasn't without benefit. Finding a way to cover pre-existing conditions is a value add, and anything congressional Republicans come up with is bound to be better than O-care. (famous last words)

And I almost forgot... Once Arizona is called for Trump and now that Michigan's unofficial final tally has Trump in the lead by 12,488, Trump's electoral vote total is 279+11+16=306

Making my election eve prediction come true.

I do not remember JG's election prediction, b/c mine was more like JK's:

He won't last a few weeks, he won't win the nomination, he doesn't have a chance
pretty much to a "tee"
I hope to be proven wrong about his skills and policy.
Amen, brother, amen!

And now IS the time for a dogpile. Some amusingly fun thoughts from Power Line:

Hayward: One great upside of this will be watching Democrats turn viciously on the Clintons. Long overdue.
Agreed; She went for the long ball and bombed all right!
Mirengoff: the African-American vote fell well short of Hillary Clinton’s expectations and needs. Obama’s legacy was indeed on the ballot. It lost.

Hinderocker: Obama’s persona as our First Black President is far more popular than his actual policies.
Like Bill Clinton, I'd argue!
[quoting from a Krugman column] Still, I guess people want an answer: If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never. Hinderocker: Great specialty you’ve got there, Paul. How long did it take markets to recover? The Dow opened down a whopping 15 points, and is now up 251 points.

My prediction. Second paragraph.

Not that I want to keep mentioning it or anything. I'm just here to keep 3Sourcers informed.
