Nothing

If he gets one of his proposals through congress it will be a bonus, each one after, a bigger bonus.

It is not about getting anything passed, it is changing the narrative and the course. I don't expect him to be able to single handily work miracles. IMO, President Obama was the best President in my life, I am over 50. Obama changed the course slightly, now is time for a sharp left turn. The youth vote is all lined up, it is a matter of taking advantage of the opportunity at hand. Reagan didn't have overwhelming legislative accomplishments, but he changed the course, was transformational. Bush went a bit further but nothing overwhelming again. Then eight years of Clinton, nothing major. Then W. was escorted in and all Hell broke lose.

It is a long game, the goal is to set it up for a Preident Warren or someone similar.

So, Hillary fans, don't try to convince me using the argument that he won't be able to get anything done.

1. That is not the goal for a lot of us, including many of us a tad older.
2. We lived through what Bill got done, and being polite, it wasn't that damn impressive.

Finally, part of one of my favorite speeches, just before I was born.

"Why does Rice play Texas?"

Google it, listen/read the speech. The County is so far off track that something like this would never be considered today, we need to try to get back on that path. We have youth numbers that exceed those during the Reagan Revolution. They can't be wasted.
