Donald Trump is played loud and wrong, and, no doubt, ended the long close down of the state apparatus with an ignominious political defeat. It is not enough that the wall was without money. House speaker Nancy Pelosi showed that the Democrats now possess the power that cannot be insulted away.
the President's confidence figures got a new bang. The question is how the Democrats can use their new position to defeat the Trump 2020.
no one with succession rights to candidacy, as Hillary Clinton. Her flaws were obvious from the beginning. Over a quarter of a century in the spotlight, she had incurred many scandals and dislikes. And she personified the establishment, the whole of the valkampanjens target.
Trump has shattered inhibitions and in many ways paved the way for the populists also to the left.
the Primaries start a year from now. The democratic field will be large, with several women. Former vice president Joe Biden is the early favorite, but most of the force of a well-known name. Jeb Bush was given in the republican race four years ago, and fell like a stone. Biden is 76 years old, has spent 45 of them in Washington and corresponds hardly the dream of the new democratic times.
Trump has shattered inhibitions and in many ways paved the way for the populists also to the left. Among the democrats, there is a widespread dissatisfaction with the pragmatism that is alleged to have shown its ineptitude.

Socialistveteranen Bernie Sanders has got tougher competition. Young people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gets the attention for its cheeky twittering, but she is not alone to think that 70% is enough tax for high income earners. Elizabeth Warren has already declared her candidacy with a program against the rich capitalists and corrupt companies.

Trump mobilized their angry white men, but also plenty of voters who are sick of his lies and vulgar style.

worked well in mellanårsvalet. To try to convince americans about the benefits of a european tax-based system, however, is an insecure recipe for success. It is not possible to win just along the liberal-dominated coasts. Warren and Ocasio-Cortez is liable to scare away the voters as needed.
the woman question is inevitable, but a woman can win against Trump if she is not named Clinton. A record number of women lined up in mellanårsvalet and won, and more women than men vote. Obviously requires talent to resist when the invektiven hails.
as Kamala Harris, senator from California with indian and jamaican descent. She has gone to the left since she was elected to congress, but has credentials as a tough prosecutor. A bridge can be build between the party's factions.
