It’s so depressing. I had such hopes for Elizabeth Warren, who isn’t such a youth turnout machine as Bernie, but who many would have rallied behind. Bernie was my second choice, because I believe America needs a radical rethink not just some tweaking. Instead, we’ve ended up with a moderate as can be white guy whose ability to string a sentence together is fast waning. This election should be a gimme after the last four years, but unfortunately I think we’ve handed it to Trump again.
