It makes sense that Democrats would get all excited about that so-called blue wave. Its base is extremely anxious to impeach Pres. Trump, and only a Democratic House of Representatives and a Democratic Senate will be able to accomplish that.
Unfortunately, this adds up to little more than wishful thinking on the part of progressive and liberal voters.
In fact, top Democratic leaders including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have been clear about the fact that they have no intention whatsoever to impeach the president. Don’t be surprised if progressives and liberals are less than enthusiastic when it’s time to vote for president in 2020.
