SPD In His speech tonight trump mentioned second to none infrastructure. I can get behind that. He might be able to get congress to appropriate the funds.

Might be great for NYC to have new airports and trains, all air conditioned like in a real modern city. Not sure it'll be so good for Youngstown, oh.

I don't think it is Trump's move yet. There are cards on Obama/Clinton's side yet to be played out.

According to the statute on handling classified media, Clinton did clearly violate the law. According to the statute, Negligence is not an excuse.

Possible sequence to follow:
1. The AG has Clinton charged.
2. She admits guilt gets sentenced.
3. Obama commutes the sentence and pardon's her as he leaves office.

I think that could happen in the remaining month an half. She needs to admit guilt so that real data which could be worse, doesn't get presented in court. Once sentenced and then pardoned, she would not be able to be retried due to double jeopardy. At this point Hillary should be free and clear of the problems with her Email, probably forever.

His next move is starting to build a rational transition team.

The move after that is hopefully backing away from a lot of the rhetoric of the campaign.

As for President Obama pardoning Clinton, while possible, that might be the final nail in the DNC for fixing it against Bernie.

Anyway, hopefully that's the path they take.

Besides we're still 70 days from inauguration. Come Monday, the stock markets may be cratered, or may be bounced back.

I don't think Trump does anything to Hillary she's the biggest failure we've ever seen in politics. If you can't win with #NeverTrump you are never going to win. It does look like Trump path to victory was the only one I could think of. Low voter turnout. He actually lost the popular vote but the numbers are incredibly low. Roughly 59 million to 59 million. For reference Obama won 2008 69 million to 59 million. We are a bigger country now so it's like 12 to 15 million people that showed up in the Obama election didn't bother showing up to this election.

I would hope the gravity of the office changes him. Otoh , I have seen power make some even MORE petty.

That's the crux of it.

my bet: continued outrageous rhetoric, doing the opposite of what he says, denying he is doing anything inconsistent with his outrageous rhetoric, even if it is palpably obvious, and blaming others for not doing whatever it was he said he'd do.

which would actually be great.

That could be great. If the right-wing media falls in line with him, which they probably will, he'll be able to pull it off.

Big risk is whether he will continue to be overly sensitive to criticism. Every single day there will be political cartoons mocking him, like any president. His approval ratings may not be strong.

He has not shown himself to be thick-skinned - will he let that stuff get to him?

Submitted by scaredyclassic on November 9, 2016 - 10:11am.

i think it will be all comedy to him. so no, I don't think he will really care. he goes on howard stern, fer chrissakes. how seriously can he really take himself.

Submitted by Hatfield on November 9, 2016 - 10:56am.

Well, I guess if he's smart his next move will be to prepare for his fraud trial on Nov 28th.

Nobody talk about cutting taxes? Republicans party just got a once in a generation opportunity to redo the tax code. I think this will be done real fast.

Trump has apparently played his last Trump card.

He announces his 2024 candidacy and not one person on here mentions it.

I think everyone but his core group doesn't take him seriously any more.

I was talking about this with a few folks and thought that if Trump really wants to stay relevant, he should do the following, because it would be so unexpected, that well it just might work...

1) Switch parties and register himself as a Democrat and run as a Democrat.

2) Come out apologizing for his bad behavior for the past 6 years and make a symbolic token gesture of supporting some protected woke group like some LGBTQ+ organization.

3)Start using people's prefered pronouns of he/him, or she/her, or they/them.

4) Attack the GOP establishment for being a terrible monster of racist, homophobic, anti-science, anti-climate change, anti-environment, anti-abortion, election deniers that created a toxic american culture, and anti-vaxxer, flat earther bumpkins Shame on "them" for continuing this charade.

5) Attack DeSantis as being the POS ringleader for this GOP circus.

6) Run as a moderate with a theme of "Making America United Again".

7) Embrace climate change and talk about being carbon neutral. And propose that the Federal Emissions standard should be updated to conform to the much stricter California CAFE standards.

----------

A lot of issues would be solved by Trump doing this

a) All the Jan 6 and corruption investigations led by mostly Democrats would suddenly stop

b) Trump could spend the next 4 years selling his merchandise and brand to much larger audience than for the past 6 years....Which is what he essentially did anyway.

c) We would see a lot of far right winger's head explode and we would see a lot of far left winger's hypocrisy once all the calls to lock him up stop once he is Democrat.

And the rest of us get to see the entertainment value of Trump successfully trolling the majority of the population and just how dumb many Americans are.

His candidacy was covered minimally. All his big donors have come out against him. The death spiral into irrelevancy begins

that just might work flu!

It'll never happen but it would be fun if it did!

From a strategy point of view, the Republicans are in a tough spot. If they stick with trump, can he win? That doesn't look so likely. If they try to toss him to the side, will he go quietly? I doubt it. Instead he rips into any potential challenger. Calling DeSantis DeSanctimonious is just the start. That could split the party right in half. And a split party isn't a recipe for winning elections.

Seems to me that everyone who has gotten in bed with trump regrets it in the end. I don't see why that would change now.

Republicans are in a tough spot. Just as has been pointed out.

He will shred to pieces anyone who challenges him.

But he can't win. I saw a good quote the other day - there are too many people who will crawl through broken glass just to vote against him.
