2. Elaine Denny at the Monkey Cage on Donald Trump, losing and conservatives.

3. Also at the Monkey Cage, Amy Erica Smith looks at whether the U.S. still believes in democracy.

4. Molly Reynolds at the Wall Street Journal on the challenges for Speaker Paul Ryan in the next Congress even if Republicans do hold their majority.

5. Jennifer Bendery at the Huffington Post reminds us that it’s not just the Supreme Court: Senate Republicans are slow-walking or just outright refusing to act on many judicial nominations.
