America is hard to do . . .

“… A lot of us forget that. You know, we got in that Obama bubble bath, and we were just, Oh man, this feels good. Eight years later, you get out and you’re kind of wrinkly and weak and you’re not really prepared to fight. You’ve got to remember, democracy is hard. It’s hard work, and you can’t take any of these elections off.”

— Van Jones, CNN commentator, in Beyond the Messy TruthHow We Came Apart – How We Come Together (2017)
