I don't recall the Democrats engaging in any recounts. I remember Jill Stein trying to do it but, to be fair, if not for her no recounts would have been necessary. Nor do I recall any attempts to persuade electors to "go faithless". I, personally would have liked to have seen that or at least having them place greater faith in the country itself. And it could have happened if Hillary had instructed "her" electors to cote, instead, for a rational Republican like, say, John Kasich. Then see if any Republican electors would follow suit. Think of what the country could have been spared.
