They say hindsight is 20/20.
As I look back on the last eighteen months of convoluted and crazy political mechanizations, it is crystal clear now, that Trump would win. In fact, I told some friends in May that Trump would win in a landslide.
Was I prescient? No. But here are the reasons we all should have seen:
The point is, since John Kennedy won the Presidency, most elections have revolved around the issue that the two parties wanted us to focus on. They controlled the agenda, and therefore, the outcomes never really changed anything. Once the election was over, the politicians went back to business as usual.
Of all the people who had aspirations to become the successor to Barack Obama, if you look at the field with dispassion, there was only one man on the planet that had a chance to upset the status quo.
And the people found him.
