POV | Trump is Now Everyone's President

Posted: Updated:

So, who did you vote against on Tuesday?  Whether you were for Trump or against him, or for Hillary or against her, you have to admit, that was one of the most amazing election nights of a generation or two. Las Vegas started the night with 9-1 odds that Hillary Clinton would win the presidency. By the end, I think almost everyone was shocked.

Trump tapped into in a dissatisfaction in this country that the pundits, the pollsters, and both political parties never saw.  It will be interesting to see if he can channel that for good.

I can't help thinking about the dog that finally caught the car: Now what are you going to do with it?  What will Trump do with the presidency?  Will he rise to the stature of the office?  Abraham Lincoln was not considered the most qualified president ever elected. In fact, many thought him unqualified in the beginning, but he rose to the office and in five short years he left a legacy as perhaps America's greatest president.

I'm not saying Trump will be Lincoln, but I honestly want every president to be successful. I am an American first and my partisanship comes in a distant second. As American's, we need to get behind him and hope he surrounds himself with quality people. He will be our president and we all need him to be successful.

I'm Bill Lamb…and that's my Point of View.
