|Deus ex machina? Probably not. But at least it won't be Obama's third term.|
"Donald Trump likely made history — winning the presidency only 17 months after entering politics, after being counted out time and again.
His win (assuming Clinton concedes today) is a decisive rejection of Hillary Clinton and a harsh repudiation of President Obama, who thought he could seize on the temporary lock on Congress (including a super-majority in the Senate) voters gave Democrats in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis to move the nation permanently to the left.
Instead, he opened the door to the mother of all populist push backs.
Trump’s victory is a punch in the face of the cultural elite, the Washington insiders and Wall Street, too."
