Five years ago today, I wrote my analysis of the results of 2012 United States presidential election:
What a truly great day that was - the United States had just re-elected its first African-American president. Those who were determined to cause him to only serve one term had failed and things were looking up. Then, four years later...what happened? America took several steps forward with the election and re-election of President Obama and then leapt twice as much back when it elected the current president. What a severe disappointment.
