My darlings, we did it. We ousted a sitting president.
I know it may not feel much like victory. The Senate may remain in Republican hands. Republicans gained seats in the House. We barely squeaked out a win in Pennsylvania, and several states that we thought might turn blue didn’t. We didn’t get the full-throated roar in the electoral college that would have definitively destroyed Trumpism. We aren’t yet seeing the Republican party in ruins, as they so richly deserve.
Nevertheless, this was a victory.
I’m even calling it a resounding one, despite feeling quite otherwise in the early aftermath.
