    Thanks, Mark Binder, for a courageous statement. I keep thinking that we must stop demonizing the other. The others are neighbors, friends, sometimes family members. Neither the Clintons not their endless campaign staff listened across the great divide. I too was a Bernie Sanders supporter. i still am. I think he remains the clearest voice with the clearest message and the strongest moral vision. I do not trust Trump at all and I fear him a lot. But I agree that we must give him at least a chance. And even more, as you say, we must rise above the rhetoric of fear and hate.

    Sing it with me, progressives!

    “All over people changing their votes
    Along with their overcoats
    If Adolf Hitler flew in today
    They’d send a limousine anyway”

    “We must rise above the rhetoric of fear and hate. ”

    And what better way to do that than to appoint Stephen Bannon to chief White House strategist (on the same day no less that this was posted)?

    It can’t happen here, Mark?
