I can't quite put to words the bitter taste in my mouth, and the reeling disappointment I feel. America is marching steadily rightward. Even if the march were rightward under a competent, honest, and responsible administration - I would be bitterly disappointed by that trend.
I hope Democrats take the campaign in Pennsylvania to heart as a way to win a key state in elections. Sadly, I heard that Chester County went for Bush - but that's hardly surprising. Our hard work aside, Chester County has never elected a Democrat in 150 years. Still, we did our part. We did our part.
It just wasn't enough.
