Presdient's DON'T come into office with political capital? Of course they do. What a stupid thing to claim. He is. That's not the point. The point is that he lost to Clinton, had no mandate and could not get his signature policy (Teh Wall!!1!) passed by his own party. Are you willing to discuss the points, or are you just going to retreat into cliches? The Dem base pays no taxes? You know that's not true.
