Winning and losing

Minneapolis, Minnesota

This campaign season has been one for the record books on so many levels, and so fascinating. As one who started last year as a Hillary supporter and then was drawn to Obama, I felt joy in his win and no joy or satisfaction in her loss. Any of us who have worked on national campaigns know how decimating it can be to lose; on my worst days, I still feel twinges of sadness about George McGovern's 1972 nomination victory at the convention in Miami -- I had worked night and day for a different candidate.
