    "Democrats should be united in celebrating this moment...."

    LOVE that we appeared united here at least for awhile, and I saw this place as the place "to elect Democrats" for sure.

    The tiny celebration we were afforded, though, was quickly engulfed by the usual savage criticism by those here who happen to be those "liberal critics" who expected Obama caving in an enormous disaster.

    "Watch. He'll cave. Just watch: he'll cave." We heard this for three weeks.

    Hey, it was nice for awhile that we were the Democratic Party here for awhile. But I'm pessimistic for the future, and especially pessimistic about our unity in 2016.
