This is, once again, an incorrect focus on the individual who is the president. The problem is both systemic, and with the *voters*, not individual politicians.
Democrats misjudged badly when they decided they didn’t need to turn out for the 2010 mid-terms. That started the gerrymandering that continues to affect us.
That was 18 years ago, coming up on a generation. It’s going to take at least another generation to straighten this out, during which Dems must win mid-terms in addition to presidential elections.
(Even off-year elections can result in school boards populated with crazies who deny evolution and think the Confederacy was a heroic Lost Cause.)
The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.
