A YEAR WITH POTENTIAL

via Daily Prompt: Year

2017 could potentially be a seminal year for the US. If Donald Trump can  check his narcissism, curb his tendency for juvenility and finesse  his approach to negotiating, he may well consistently garner more so called bipartisan cooperation than any president in recent memory.

Trump may also prompt many Americans to rethink the efficacy of partisanship and appreciably increase the ranks of independent voters; so that pandering to one’s party will no longer be sufficient to ensure job security thereby requiring congress to take a more national view and proactive role in government.

Conversely, if President Trump is like candidate Trump and President-elect Trump, this year and the next three will simply be a surreal digression; ultimately resulting in a return to our dysfunctional national narrative.
