The American people, in the main, seemed to be calling for finality and closure, rather than democracy. Well, you got it.

Was it not Zimbabwe's Mugabe who pointed out that if his opponent had polled more votes, yet he had won the election, the US would have sanctioned him for undemocratic practise?

The fact is, the vast majority of US elections, since they began, have been won by the taller candidate. The American people have been voting for inches rather than policies. This sets a poor example.
