I think we are in for a rough time.
Will people abroad want to hold dollars if the people running the country have a track record of deficits and talking down the dollar?
Will the weakened Senate Democrats have the guts to filibuster extreme Supreme Court nominees?
Will a more right-wing court stand up to this administration's propensity for torture and arbitrary detention?
What will happen to global warming and environmental quality generally?
I would be delighted to be wrong, but I think that all but one of these questions are going to have really lousy answers, as will many others.
