"If the trumpet gives an uncertain sound who shall prepare himself to the battle," says St Paul. Obama was that kind of trumpet. Hillary would have been such another. No uncertainty about Trump. Tan-tan-tara. And just as he's mustered his own troops so he's envigorated ours.
And look, no leaders. This is a people's movement. Somebody who's nobody in particular put it on FB or Twitter that women should march- and they did.
Eight years of Obama left me wondering whether I was still a liberal. After all, liberals seemed to be people who schmoozed with bankers and killed innocents with drones. A few days of Trump have made me happy to dig the badge out of the drawer and stick it back in my shirtfront.
