Even if Democrats find most of Trump's agenda, appointees and attitudes abhorrent, weren't members of Congress elected to accomplish good deeds for the American people? [...] even if Trump reaps political gain, wouldn't Democrats also bask in the glow of actual accomplishment instead of perpetuating eternal gridlock on every issue?
