The sooner you accept this, the less painful this election cycle will be.
What is it exactly that you have accepted that has made this election cycle less painful?
The only reason there seems to be according to the mainstream media and the bleeding heart liberal apologists is to elect the first woman president to break the glass ceiling... And while I'm all for the first woman president I'm also for someone who will not be a complete catastrophe such as Hillary Clinton
Actually, it's because, as Max put it, "most of us Americans, including many conservatives, view Trump as unstable."
It wouldn't be painless, surely, but less so given the implications of a Trump presidency.
