This uncomfortable CNN interview with Angela Giron, the Colorado state senator who was removed from office this week in a recall election, reminds us of a t-shirt we bought in November 2000. (Actually, we bought nine for friends and family...)
We're pretty good with our US history, but we do not recall a Democrat loser who acted with class following their defeat. At least not in recent history.
The only way we can see ourselves behaving in this manner, and even this is a stretch, is if we had felt ENTITLED to the victory.
Which, of course, would be quite ARROGANT on our part.
