Thanks for the comments, Kady. I am optimistic, yes, but if you are going to say anything useful you have to predict the future before you get there. Eventually we’ll get to the end-zone, but there is not much point predicting the past, is there? Even if I am wrong, and Donald Trump doesn’t turn out to be the best US President in 50 years, being optimistic about the future makes me a happier person in the meantime.

And on that “everyone hates Trump” accusation, apparently he just hit 51% approval rating in the last opinion poll.
