Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well obviously I don't agree that the dems should stop navelgazing. All the massmobilsation against the Iraq war electorally didn't amount to a hill of beans when the dems ran on a "yes but" platform. They can't be delusional enough to run with Hillary2020?

Still, except for the dems, early signs are moderately hopeful. This looks like a clear overreach and a major defeat in week two could set the tone for the rest. Trump still continues his feud with the news media without having an alternative source of legitimacy and parts of the deep state are still hostile. Of course other parts of the security aparatus are going full fascist and defying court orders. Still, could be worse.
