Roy Moore limpingly canters off into the Alabama sunset. Buh-bye. To Steve Bannon, too. Senior Senator Shelby gave permission for write-ins to reject a bad choice. Attorney General Sessions’ undefeatable deep red seat has been upended by blue Doug Jones.
Rejoice Democrats. Joe Trippi. But. Take heed. Jones is not the future of the party. He beat a deadbeat. It will take more than Booker and Barkley to rally the center-right to the far-left. Warren & Sanders are not general election winners. Moderates with charisma needed.
