Apparently the only thing he has held is "a woman's pussy".
But if that is no issue to the American voters, then who am I to complain.

I don't mean to get defensive, as my sense of nationalism and patriotism is near zero right now. But please try not to blame "the American voters." Clearly, half of us didn't want this.

Well, there's plenty of prior presidents who didn't serve in the military either.

Yes, and that reads public office, OR either a military or cabinet position (political roles).

The first one I recall was Bill Clinton, and I do remember people on the right being as hysterical that he beat Bush 1, a WW2 hero. I remember people calling him a draft dodger, traitor.

I'd be careful shitting on the electoral college in favor of popular vote. You have to imagine were this the case, you'd be exacerbating the very issue that created Trump. Two shitty parties that pander to their favored groups and neglect or take for granted folks that are in small town America. The last thing we need is an election where the dem sits in New York and California for the whole campaign while the republican hangs out in Texas.

don't think i was shitting on the electoral college -- i was just stating a fact. i can see upsides and downsides to the EC.

but rural votes are privileged over urban votes, in the EC and especially in the Senate.

i suppose DC can give up it's dream of congressional representation for another generation.

I had to take the train to work today because I was up late forgetting my sorrows. Now I'm drinking some apple cider and wondering if my boss would notice if I slip something into it.

The Supreme Court is definitely something to be concerned with, but Trump's conservatism seems to be basically focused on economics. He really isn't super conservative as far as social issues are concerned, so it will be interesting to see who he nominates. Does he give in to the party and nominate someone ultra conservative, or does he follow his own path and maybe nominate somebody moderate? We can only wait and see, but its possible it may not be the crisis it would be if Pence were atop the ticket.
In the meantime you live in a state that is as liberal as they come, that's frankly more important than anything on a federal level.
