In the end, bigotry, mendacity, and narcissism lost. Decency and reason won. But the election failed to produce a thoroughgoing repudiation of Trumpism and its race-based, grievance-driven brand of politics.
Lessons of the U.S election: 1) Leadership is about policy AND personality 2) Leaders will be judged by what they SAY not just what they DO 3) Leaders must ultimately represent everyone,not just those who voted for them 4) Leaders with decency & values haven’t gone out of fashion
Queensland’s new LNP leader @DavidCrisafulli says the 2024 election will overwhelmingly be about the economy, vowing to make a “superior economic case” and govern with grace, humility and decency.
Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris said voters chose "hope and unity, decency, science, and yes, truth" this election day. Read her full victory speech here:
THe 2020 US presidential election has confirmed that nearly half the electorate still prefers a politics of division and hatred to one of decency and unity. That is not Russia's fault – and never was, writes @nk18 .
A vote for @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris is a vote for decency, unity, and our future. Let’s remember this Election Day as the moment the American people came together to restore dignity to the White House.
This election is too important. It’s about more than just politics... it’s about the character of our country. It’s about decency and doing what is right for all people.
Proud to endorse an outstanding group of Virginia Democrats in Tuesday’s election—candidates who’ll not only advance the causes of equality, justice, and decency, but help ensure that the next decade of voting maps are drawn fairly. That’s good policy—and good for our politics.
The goal of this election is simple: We must bring decency back to the White House.
This is not the end. We can turn the tide. We can still choose hope. We can still choose decency. We can still choose truth. ...32 days until Election Day.
This election is simply a referendum on decency - Trump has none, and if he's elected there's a part of this country we will never get back
