BRIT HUME: I would add one more thought for everyone, and that is what does this mean for the great Steve Bannon, a man we’ve been given to believe was a master political strategist. He would like everyone to think that he's the man whose wisdom got Donald Trump elected, although Donald Trump doesn’t like to hear that.  But he went down and he really did go all in for Roy Moore. And this is a state where it’s very hard for Republicans to lose and his man lost and he lost as the result of a fact that enough people in Alabama thought enough of what those women said about Roy Moore that they didn't want him as their senator and that is the result tonight. So it remains to be seen how this will affect the standing of Steve Bannon who we thought was a pretty big player outside the White House. Maybe not.
