Why ever not?
I've never hesitated to complain/fuss/whine about someone I've voted for. No, I don't like him, that should be fairly obvious, but he deserves a
chance to get it right.
All he has to do, is do what the majority of Americans want him to do, while at the same time attempting to ensure that the minority are protected.
To do this, he needs our support--no matter how reluctant. If he screws up, all bets are off, and they should be.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for an egotist of his calibre, he literally has the fate of the world in his hands. He needs to, now,
tonight, start to work with those who are going to be in leadership positions in Congress, not just the majority, but the minority, as well.
How much support can he actually count on in Congress? That is going to determine his tenure in office. Will his ego allow him to be humble enough
to ask for help, or will it demand autocratic behavior, which won't go down well, at all.
If he truly is the independent he's attempted to portray himself as (I've doubts, a lot of them.) he's going to have to work with both sides.
His cabinet choices are going to go a long ways towards the success, or lack there of, his administration may or may not have. Newt Gingrich, a name
that's apparently being bandied about, will not win him many friends on the minority side of the aisle. Hopefully, this occurs to him. If it does to
me, certainly someone on his staff can enlighten him.
We shall see, what we shall see.
