CNN’s Van Jones Eyes Are Opened By White Obama Voters Who Voted Trump

Those who watched CNN's election night coverage will probably remember Van Jones' seemingly precarious mental state as it became clearer and clearer that America was in for a Trump presidency. 

Say what you will about his emotional reaction on the night in question, but at least at this point, it looks like he's willing to engage Trump voters with a somewhat open mind. It's the kind of soul-searching a lot of Democrats need to be doing if they're serious about rebuilding the street-cred of their party.

One thing that still rubs me the wrong way- his lack of ability to understand why all Democratic women didn't automatically want to vote for Hillary. I find it condescending. He's basically criticizing her for not engaging in identity politics.
