Democrats should be careful what they wish regarding the outcome of the Russian Connections investigations
Democrats ought to be careful what they wish. Some are hoping that Donald Trump does not finish his full term because of impeachment or some other damning evidence.The Senate recently voted to permit states to refuse to use federal money to fund Planned Parenthood. The vote was a tie and Vice President Mike Pence broke the tie. This should be a reminder that if Mike Pence becomes our president because of a presidential vacancy, he is also a hard line ideologue who opposes much of what the Democratic party stands for on policy and administrative action. Donald Trump’s ideology is more populist and more flexible, and more driven by promoting US and self aggrandizement.
