most qualified candidate in U.S. history!” This is code for “most entitled born-to-rule arrogant candidate in U.S. history!” The constant assumption that she would be elected because she was most qualified, and the Establishment candidate turned voters off.

Add to this that she told voters that if they didn’t vote for her, they were racist, sexist, homophobic white supremacists in a “Basket of deplorables”, and it is easy to see why so many Americans voted for Trump.

“Make America Great Again” is so much better a vision than “Just more of the same.”

If the Democrats can’t accept that they had a lousy candidate and an unacceptable vision for America’s future, they are doomed to a generation in the political wilderness.
