Agreed. And with Trump at the helm, I think true change might actually happen.

Democrats are now poised to become the obstructionists. (Remember that word? It was thrown around promiscuously to describe the Republican-majority Congress' unwillingness to act as a rubber stamp for President Obama.)

This, however, is personal: It reflects many Democrats' severs distaste for Republicans. (Actually, I am phrasing that a bit euphemistically; it reflects, more precisely, many Democrats' hatred of Republicans.)

Now, just about anyone that soon-to-be President Trump nominates will be given "the Garland treatment" (an oblique reference to the Republicans' desire to wait until after the presidential election to act on the nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court--and then not at all, if Trump should win.)

And the policies that Donald Trump will surely try to enact--both domestic and foreign--will surely be fought tooth and nail, also.

Ever since the Democratic Party has moved far to the left--it is essentially now the party of Elizabeth Warren, rather than the party of Harry Truman--any thought of bipartisanship appears to have gone out the window.

I don't know how you on the right have the balls to claim the left are the ones who are the obstructionists. You did nothing at all for 6 years. The Republican congress did nothing for 6 years. Not a thing. They claimed they would oppose Obama at every chance and did. look at the Supreme court nominee.
You can't punch someone and then whine when you get punched back. And besides all of that I dislike Trumps approach to everything so I will oppose everything.
