    Alvast een pro-actieve post-mortem:
    Blame the party, not the campaign

    The most predictable and fascinating ritual of American electoral politics has begun. And, no, I am not talking about early voting or pundit predictions. It is not last-minute robo-calls or get-out-the-vote operations either.

    I am talking about finger-pointing. Yes, the blame game. In case you have not noticed, it is in full tilt.

    You may think the blame game is played in smoky back rooms and dark alleys. Be under no illusions. The blame game is not merely a sideshow of the drama of the world’s most influential democracy, which elects the world’s most influential leader. In the coming weeks, watching the Republican party implode will be the main event.
