Dole conceded that he is "a Trumper, but that these days he is discouraged and "sort of Trumped-out." I don’t like to second-guess, but I believe we've lost something. I can't get my hand on it, but we're just not where we should be, as the greatest democracy in the world. I don't know how you correct it, but I keep hoping that there will be a change in my lifetime.

I hope there is a reckoning at some point. My sense is that over the next few generations, as older folks pass on and rural America gets drawn into reality - maybe kicking and screaming - as Democrats invest in their future vs keeping them poor and ignorant, "Reaganism" and trickle down will be seen as the mythology it is, and we can get on with the business of creating a more perfect union.
