Not a nation divided — a nation dissatisfied
: The NY Times ran red-v-blue electoral college maps from 1940 today and what screams out from that is that we are not a nation divided, we are a nation dissatisfied with our choice. Given a candidate to be enthusiastic about, most of the states go one way or another. The exception since 1964: Carter v. Ford. We liked Reagan, as a nation. We liked Clinton, as a nation. We didn’t like this choice, these last two elections. Give us somebody to get behind and watch the red-vs-blue civil war — and all the media blather about it — melt away.
