Yet Walsh warned Democrats not to fall into the same trap as they did eight years ago, after an inspiring 47-year-old first-term senator with a powerful stage presence was elected president. I'm more surprised with the extremely harsh ways people have reacted.
Until that race is settled, Republicans have 51 Senate seats for the Congress that will convene in January; Democrats have 46, plus two independents who generally align with them. The New York Times has a series of clear graphs about Trump's base, and aside from being overwhelmingly white, the income level of the majority of his voters compared to Clinton voters individually make over $50,000 a year.
Many believed that their jobs and their communities were sacrificed in the name of corporate greed, globalization and trade - all to benefit a class of corporate and political elites who, in their opinion, could care less about their lives.
DEVINE: Well, I think because those middle-class workers thought that our party was not speaking to them, to their issues, to their concerns, to their priorities - that we were not in touch with them the way we should have been. Solidarity is key here. He's Bernie Sanders' closest ally in the Senate, and he might be the one to take his revolution farther. We had two less than favorable choices, and either way, America would have lost.
Hillary Clinton wasn't alone in losing the election despite winning the majority of the popular vote on Tuesday night.
My heart aches for those groups in fear of President-elect Donald Trump including women, the LGBTQ community, blacks, Hispanics and Muslims. It wasn't Clinton who threatened to put her opponent in jail and who made crude comments about the appearance of women.

Packers declare Clay Matthews out against Titans
Melvin Gordon ran and ran and ran some more for the San Diego Chargers, not stopping until he'd gotten a career-high 196 yards. When Matthews is in the lineup, his versatility allows the Packers to use him in ways other than rushing the passer.
The problem for Democrats is that, much like the Electoral College, the number of votes matters less than where those votes are cast. Do you think she is right? Melania Trump and Michelle Obama also had an awkward meeting too, the shadow of a plagiarised speech hanging like a thick cloud over both. Bernard Sanders' supporters - after reading WikiLeaks which confirmed their suspicions of a rigged primary system - are saying "we told you so" to the Democratic Party.
"I didn't take what he said literally".
As a member of the LGBT community, I'm concerned marriage equality might soon disappear. People ARE exhausted of billionaires not paying any federal income taxes, but clearly not the middle class who voted for Trump, a guy who may not have paid any federal income tax in 18 years.
Trump's open warfare with Republican leaders over the past year and a half obscured the extent of the Democrats' crisis, and they are only now beginning to contend with it.
With this election result, it's hard not to lose faith in humanity.
Warren laid out the principles she believes should govern Democrats during the Trump era: Standing up to bigotry, pushing for economic equality and combating the influence of Wall Street. Yet, more than 45 million people heard the same things I heard and rewarded him with the presidency.
In short, the available polling information suggests that Sanders" "political revolution" vow would have done much better against Trump than Clinton's largely "business as usual' policies.
