Anything is possible, but I'm certainly not holding my breath. Trump may be a shrewd (and ruthless) businessman and that might help solve some problems. But the office also requires political and diplomatic expertise and he lacks both. Still, we can hope that on occasion he will butt heads with his Republican collegues and give us some kind of acceptable compromise.

I agree that Dems should not become the same kind of blind obstructionists that the Republicans have been for 8 years. When it's necessary, of course, but there should be ongoing efforts to cooperate and compromise, offering worthwhile alternatives, etc.

You are correct, of course, to be skeptical. I am too. But at the same time, I'm betting his ego will drive him to succeed on at least a few points, and his nature will require him to do so quickly. Which targets will he pick? If Democrats work wisely they may be able to steer his choices.
