The problem is we live in a very... unpredictable era at the moment. I hope those historical trends continue, but we're stuck with a very un-historic president now too, so I'm not sure I would take anything for granted. Not to mention I'm not sure how partisan or gerrymandered all the districts are these days. Mostly I just have a low opinion of the American people and you'd think after two years of Trump they would realize the party that enables him is wrong for the country, but... I'm not sure I'd give the American people that much credit. I really hope it won't turn out that bad, but that's what makes it so hard- whether to be cautious or gamble or whatever, its way beyond me. Trump is just cagey enough to never directly implicate himself. Even that NBC interview only had him say Russia was a factor, not his main reason for firing Comey. Its obviously the real reason, but there's enough wiggle room to probably defend himself in court, if it came to that. And it won't, not with the Republican party protecting him. He's not a complete idiot, Trump is good at manipulating people, he's also just a jerk and lacking in empathy- he's gotten away with so many things in his life, not much can stop him now, unfortunately. Not like Congress or the Supreme Court will rein him in, barring a huge shift of power even in just the House, but that would probably be too good to be true.
