Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Looks like the impeachment goes nowhere, so no wagging the dog.

The incumbency of Trump brings along optimism and arrogance before the election ... no war with Iran, Trump's campaign promise to end all ME wars.

I hope for a Carter moment, always tough to win a 2nd term against all odds, losing the female vote.

Global Warming - distance between America and Europe is steadily increasing.

The last two Presidents to fail in a re-election bid - Carter and Bush snr.-  both failed because the economy failed (and a third candidate split the Republican vote in the case of Bush).

The chances of the economy cratering sufficiently between now and November are probably low. The Dems best chance of winning if another Republican (Romney?) splits the Republican vote again.
