    I like this part:

    ""There's still a real concern that persuasion is harder and costs more than mobilization, so let's just triple down on getting out the people who already agree with us," she said. "And I think there's a lot of worry that we don't actually know how to persuade anymore, and so maybe we should just go talk to the people we agree with."

    I wouldn't gloat over 2.8 million votes when over 90 million registered voters DIDN'T vote. Maybe this election will learn you that California and New York can't come to the rescue anymore.

    Maybe if you focused on that, plus getting a better candidate, might actually win you a Democrat as POTUS someday.

    But go ahead, carry on focusing on those paltry 2.8 million and Russia. That should keep you guys out of contention for anything the next 4 election cycles...

    Well let's remember I sure do when Obama and other top Democrats flew to Michigan right before election day when they realized finally they were losing...... and he actually stated he would be personally insulted if the black vote didn't turn out... and for Hillary. Didn't help. They didn't come out

    This happened all over the country. Why? All of this supports the OP and it really took top Democratic strategists to figure out the obvious? Obama did nothing for them.

    Period.

    Nope. Had nothing to do with BH Obama.

    The Negroes were just not excited about Hillary.

    They did not like lipstick on a pig.

    Well I can't exactly stand here and tell you why she lost, but I can say why I didn't vote for her. She was divisive, dishonest, rude, arrogant, dismissive of concerns regarding security breaches, and a hypocrite. Not things I go for in a president.

    Hillary is the machine. She's where she is because of connections not accomplishments. She is a shrill, rude robot and the sense of entitlement she showed was stunning. She was a terrible candidate and after the DNC rigged the primary, the presidential race was over before it got started.

    Although thank God she did, or we would have been stuck with a one- issue Socialist that IMO had no real world practical experience about anything but dodging honest labor.
