As we prepare for the post-election and post-inauguration periods we know, whoever wins, four more years of protest, mobilization, and political pressure will be required.
Just a note on where we are, before I get into the analysis here. As all of us recognize, as we wake shaking in the night, fearing tomorrow, this is an incredibly dangerous moment. It doesn’t just seem to, it really does get worse each election – the stakes grow higher, the dangers spread further. People’s lives – not only, not even mainly, our own – are at grave risk.
