In addition to writing on this blog, I’ve been keeping a journal on my iPad. It has a feature that shows you entries from previous years. My entry from last year on this date, among other things, reproduced a post I put on this blog giving my reasons for considering Hillary Clinton a flawed candidate. It stands up rather well, though I was wrong about Hillary being scandal proof.
I honestly don’t remember being quite so pessimistic about Hillary’s chances, but my other diary entries from this period are along the same lines. By the time the election rolled around I’d convinced myself she was going to win. Well, mostly convinced myself.
Only a year ago, but it seems more like a lifetime.
