Something optimistic!

I was driving into work this morning and they had some big Wall Street muckety-muck on NPR, talking about the election. He said his firm has not at all planned for a Trump presidency because it’s just not going to happen. On the other hand, he said something like, “Not only have we planned for a Clinton presidency, but we’re considering how her likely cabinet appointments will affect the economy.” So, they’ve put a lot of thought into Clinton and none into Trump—yay?

He also said that he expects Clinton’s first term to be very progressive, because she’ll probably have a democratic majority congress and she’ll need to really get progressive voters on her side to get re-elected, plus she’ll have people like Elizabeth Warren holding her accountable. Double yay!
