TRISH REGAN: There was a time in history when the U.S. was just as fractured, when people refused to see others as people, when politics got in the way of family, of decency and faith in our government. I'm talking about the 1850s. The result was the darkest moment in American history: the Civil War. And we're near a civil war right now. I don't mean a war in quite a literal, historic sense. I don't believe there's going to be armies and generals leading battles. I certainly hope not. But when you're at a breaking point in terms of an emotional civil war with violence that will spill into our streets -- it's happening now, our leaders must take responsibility for this. They cannot permit this violence nor can they move forward to undo an election by refusing to follow constitutional and historic precedent. They're shattering Americans' faith in them and the result could be catastrophic.
