This is a whole new experience for us. Members of our own party causing so much pain, agita, and teeth gnashing. Maybe this whole thing just stings more because we've become so inured and blaise about El Presidente's shit that seeing similarly painful shenanigans coming from our own camp stands out and hurts that much more. Either way, it's going to be a long haul, and I just hope we can shake hands and make up when all this is over.
Also, pay close attention to Richard Wolfe's comments on "experience." Therein lies the whole nitty gritty. Really kids. Ponder Wolfe, consider briefly McCain's status as POW and war hero, and then recall how many times on The West Wing you saw Stockard Channing present in the Oval Office during policy meetings or in the situation room. That is game, set and match in November- and another 4 years with a Republican in the White House.
