    Hindsight is a wonderful thing but it was a genuine shock it ended so close.

    •  That is true (0+ / 0-)

      I didn't expect it would be that close. But every cycle there are surprised that catch everyone off guard with it being closer than expected, and even an occasional upset winner

      •  Never Underestimate (0+ / 0-)

        Never underestimate the electoral effects of a self-deprecating mustachioed politician.
