    My hope is it works out the next four years, without changing the fabric of America.

    If the majority of people do not earn their own living, they will lose their initiative, their incentive, their self esteem, and their hands will become idle. America would transform into a dangerous and desolate place to live. 

    If it has to be Biden, let it be more of a Kennedy or Clinton presidency please...not a Sanders or Cortez.

    It will be nice to have a centrist like Biden at the wheel, and I've been impressed with his cabinet picks thus far (with the exception of Janet Yellen.) The problem with both parties and where they meet the eye of the mainstream public lies in extremism. Figures like Sanders and Cortez represent the far-leftist rhetoric of the Democratic Party, whereas you've got the Ted Cruz and Louie Gohmert types representing the far-right reaches of the GOP. The truth is that most folks are in the middle of the equation, however, the majority of people won't pay attention to matters of policy. They do, however, remember extremes. Biden might be too boring for most Americans to really follow, but at least he'll try to restore some of the diplomatic relationships with traditional allies that Trump severed. Also in his favor are his years of service in the upper chamber. Biden will most certainly be able to work across the aisle with the Senate GOP hardliners in a way that Trump was not able to do with his combative ways with Senate Dems. Neither Trump nor Biden were my cup of whiskey, but from a foreign policy standpoint, I feel much better about Biden. I don't think four more years of Trump would see us free of any new conflicts. Trump, by and large, has a neoliberal mindset, where trade is the answer to all the world's wrongs. The problem is, he lacks the intellect to keep going against the whims of the many neoconservatives in the Senate, to whom war is the answer to everything. The dam would break eventually, once the party got its full compliment of usefulness out of Donnie T. 

    Insofar as domestic policy goes, with regard to economics, I'm not sure I buy the scorched-earth post-apocalyptic "dangerous and desolate place to live" pronouncement for the near future if unemployment stays at the levels it has, but I also don't trust a neo-Keynesian like Yellen to lead the Treasury. We'll see how it pans out, but hopefully 2021 will see a crawl out of the mire.
