Anyone else just feel… bad… after this debate? Not talking about an outcome, which I can’t even make sense of. I just feel down about how much Americans seemingly hate each other based on politics.

An attitude of permanent indignation signifies great mental poverty. Politics compels its votaries to take that line and you can see their minds growing more and more impoverished every day, from one burst of righteous anger to the next.
