the likelihood of a Democrat being elected in this cycle is, by historical standards, very very small. take a look at wikipedia if your gut reaction is otherwise. with the exception of an assassination and an impeachment, the record of flipping from one party to the other is distinctive.
if this is all you have done in your lifetime you realize that. then on one hand, you have been doing this all of your life and this is your life then,
