To all this then throw in that Mr. Biden "in the basement strategy" made the election all about Mr. Trump. Mr. Biden, for his part, remains a bland and enigmatic figure. He ran on no issues other than that he would not be Mr. Trump. Thus, everyone could, in their own minds, fill in the blanks of what they thought Biden might be while Trump defined himself as the unstable - if for a minority cathartic - force that he had been for four years. To be sure, it is quite possible that Mr. Biden will pay the price for the nature of his narrow victory. He ran promising not to be Mr. Trump - and by winning this he has accomplished and soon he will hold the White House but without any policy mandate. This not being unlike Jimmy Carter in 1976, who basically ran promising not to be Richard Nixon. He then won but had no more specific policy mandate and for the next four years his presidency was a shambles - the Reagan era to follow. To be sure, the Biden people will wax poetic about the coming golden age of peace and harmony. The Trump people will wax Armageddon about stolen votes and the triumph of socialism. Elections have that effect on the partisans. Still, the old saw applies. "Be careful what you wish for - you may get it." So it may prove to be for Mr. Biden. As to the American people being "treated bad." You get what you pay for.

I sure hope so. Trump is pro life and that reason alone is why I voted for him. Altho, I always vote Republican.
