Now that the Electoral College has cast their votes, I think we can at least hope Donald Trump will be a successful President. If he isn't, it's going to be a long couple years that increases the pain and suffering of too many Americans and decreases stability across the globe.
We have to remain vigilant, but we cannot afford to lose the high ground. As First Lady Michelle Obama said, "When they go low, we go high." That's how I intend to approach life with dedicated action in the coming years.
And, we have to demand that Democrats no long ignore rural and mid-America. Leaving wide swaths of the countryside behind decades ago has been an abysmal failure, both for average Americans and for Democrats chances for state legislatures, gubernatorial offices, Congress, and now the Presidency.
Reasonable policies have no chance of success if the right people never hear them.
