Alas, two of them were headlines about a Susan Sarandon quote about Hillary.

Sigh.

I wonder what percentage of their "popularity" is due to libs seeking outrage.

I check CNN and Foxnews every day.

I benefit way more by learning about what the little people are thinking.

This board and others along with MSN and Yahoo online is basically my source of news most of the time. Only time I get a taste of cable "news" is if I am traveling and visit the hotel breakfast area. The whole lot is ridiculous and a major reason we have such a dysfunctional electorate. Impossible to form an independent opinion when the information you receive is biased.

And we didn't even like her.

I think that's the source of this obsession.

I definitely would. I assume you feel the same (if not worse) about your vote for Trump.

She's awful, and it reminds me that I had to vote for an awful person, whom I cannot stand, in order to try to keep someone even worse out of the White House. Worse yet, it was a wasted vote because he got to the White House anyway.

I hear you, but it was the best decision you could make at the time, from your perspective.

You can't go through life regretting decisions that were good at the time.

Not wanting to forget your vote (whether for Trump or HRC) is not necessarily a reaffirmation of the individual voted for...it could be just the reaffirmation that the vote was the best vote you could make at that point in time...not wanting to forget a vote may just be a reflection of a person's personal view that second guessing past decisions like that is not helpful. You can learn from such decisions without wanting to forget them.

For me, if I wanted to forget my vote, it would mean that I decided I made the wrong choice at that time. I don't think I did. So, I don't need to forget that vote. That doesn't mean I'm a big Trump supporter now, or I like everything he does. I don't. But, I still think I voted for the least awful person from my perspective. It was the best decision I could have made at that time, so I made it. No need to feel bad about it.

Now, having said all of that, if the Left predictions of Trump created concentrations camps were even remotely coming true, I might want to forget my vote. So, I guess there is a counterpoint. Thankfully, that was all insanity.

But it doesn't change the fact that it was miserable to have to make that decision. I want to forget my Circuits and Systems class from Lehigh. I got an A, but it was a miserable experience.
