I remember the isolation in being just about the only American to oppose the war with Iraq in 2003. Going to France that year was actually a relief in that at least it was possible there to debate the war with people who had some measure of rationality, unlike the deplorable and utterly clueless American people, who should be deeply ashamed of themselves and their utter depravity.
There were alas, far too few points of light to illuminate the way for our utterly benighted nation, but it is always instructive to go back and read some of the voices which were actually correct in their predictions, as opposed to the Fox News and Washington Post crowd who cheerleaded us into war.

As much as I dislike Hillary Clinton and do not want her to be President, part of me is secretly hoping she wins because she drives the base of the GOP nuts. It really would be sweet to see her win just to have it rubbed in all of their faces.
