I have frequently said that Trump might be the best thing to happen to the Democratic Party in a long while. Instead of rushing to the center or chasing the Republicans in their increasingly rapid move to the right and to fascism, Democrats are running on traditional Democratic Party values. While it did not get them the Senate this time out and we lost some good Democratic senators, maybe it's for the best.

Nancy Pelosi has said that she does not intend to impeach Trump. If the Mueller probe or some other investigation does uncover incontrovertible evidence of high crimes by Trump, then the House should vote to impeach. However, assuming Trump does not do anything disastrous in the next two years, and unless the articles of impeachment also include Pence, then the country is better off with Trump staying right where he is. The country is better off with the current buffoon than with someone with the same worldview that would be effective. A Democratic Senate would be obligated to follow through on the impeachment even if it did not include Pence.
