Who can compete against that? I used to doubt the utility of term limits. I thought, if someone's doing an excellent job why shouldn't we be able to elect him for more than 2 terms? It's because people are idiots. That rule is a permanent reminder that, despite some amazing achievements, the humankind consists, mostly, of idiots. We can be so stupid that we need to enforce some random limits to limit future collective brain farts, because we know we have the ability to really f*** up.
    I'm doubting he can get a second term. Yes, his base is solid and will stay with him. But he won the election only because Hillary was his opponent. Many of the people who voted for Trump only did so because they perceived the other alternative as worse. Don't forget that he did not win the popular vote, the election was decided in the Electoral College. A one or two state swing would have seen him defeated.

    The next election is going to be chaotic. Many conservatives have already had more than enough of Trump and most likely will not support him again. The liberals are, to be polite, in disarray and the independents have no really viable candidate or platform.

    Must be a systemic problem, if the voters in the biggest democracy in the world have to choose between two substandard candidates.

    As old as he is, Chuck might be sexy enough to petrify Putin. Not sure he would pay much attention to Kim, though. She's not his type.

    Are we talking about the same Kim, by the way?

    You're selling her short. I think you are confusing intercontinental with intergalactic. No I mean universal!!
