This quote from Republican strategist Steve Schmidt was devastating today on Meet the Press:
"The presidential race is effectively over. Hillary Rodham Clinton will be the 45th president of the United States. Chuck Schumer will be the Majority Leader of the United States. And the only question that is still up in the air is how close the Democrats will come to retaking the House Majority. What this exposes though is much deeper. It goes to the Republican Party as an institution. This candidacy, the magnitude of its disgrace to the country is almost impossible I think to articulate. But it has exposed the intellectual rot in the Republican party. It has exposed on a massive level the hypocrisy of the modern day money changers in the temple like Jerry Falwell Jr. And so this party, to go forward and to represent a conservative vision for America, has great soul searching to do. And what we’ve seen in the danger of all of these candidates is over the course of the last year these candidates who have repeatedly put their party ahead of their country, denying what is so obviously clear to anybody who’s watching about his complete and total manifest unfitness for this office."
