  1. And I'm not saying Clinton's loss was Sanders' fault, either. It wasn't. Hillary Clinton was an idiot.

    1. @mrmattimation Was it that she was trying to save face or appear the bigger person between her and Trump or am I just seeing it that way?

      1. @awl Personally? I don't think it was any of that. It all comes down to the fact that she didn't campaign ENOUGH, not that she did campaign poorly where she did campaign. (She did, but that's not the point, because so did Trump.) I think it was that she forgot to take into account the fact that it only takes a one-vote loss to ruin an election. She lost the rust belt states by incredibly narrow margins, because overall those states probably did lean in favor of her, but a simple lean isn't enough. She didn't campaign in any of those states because 51% of them said they liked her. But not all 51% of those people are voters. Trump campaigned like an idiot, but he campaigned like an idiot in states where Clinton didn't campaign at all.
