I have no idea whether it will be a good thing, or a bad thing, but one thing you have to hand to Donald Trump.... the guy seems to be tireless. We saw that in the campaign when he was turning out Tweets at 2 o'clock in the morning, then again he was back on social media when most folks were still snoozing.
And we're seeing that same level of energy as he works to form a cabinet and fill some four thousand Administration slots. Despite the unending jabs from the liberal media that Trump's transition program is too slow, he's actually ahead of Obama's schedule on that front.
Those who know Trump say he doesn't drink or smoke, and I read somewhere that he doesn't even drink coffee....probably contributing to his overall good health at the age of 70. (Although I'm a little suspect of those who don't drink coffee).
As to Trump's transition schedule, I think he's doing fine. And, although I had different picks in mind for his key staff, I see no problems with the folks he's chosen so far. I've also been very encouraged with how Trump is working to heal the political wounds, the most notable being his gracious invitation to meet with Romney last Saturday.
So, the fingers remained crossed that Trump's gonna surprise us all...that he'll continue to appoint good people, that he'll actually listen to them, and, unlike Obama, that he'll give them the freedom to do their job.
I can't help but think that, if Trump delegates, if he relies on his experts, if he studies the complexity of problems real hard, then applies that seemingly unbounded energy to the job of President, he just might succeed....and maybe even succeed spectacularly.
I know I'm being overly optimistic here. I always am as the new man comes in and takes a seat in the Oval Office. For our nation's sake, let's hope the Energizer Bunny can charge up this nation and get her going again.
