Instead, they walked to a parking lot in Cleveland, Ohio and blew their collective brains out.
Their candidate is so bad that he is eroding all their work, putting the Senate into the play, and the Democrats now have their eyes on the House. At this rate, the Republicans may achieve the wrong trifecta, giving Democrats victory.
Personally, I don't expect Democratic trifecta, but I do expect a Democratic Senate majority, and with it, the end of the filibuster. (I regret the necessity of its removal, but as the filibuster has been weaponized, it has ceased to be a tool of the minority, instead turning into the rule of the minority.)
