For the record, I'm hoping that President Trump wins every challenge or the election goes to the House and he wins 26-24. At the same time, it may not happen unless something changes very fast over the next couple of weeks.
Nevertheless, President Trump accomplished three things that will make it very difficult for a President Biden to govern.
First, the appointments to the Supreme Court. My guess is that this Court is going to drive the left crazy when President Biden tries to govern by executive orders.
Second, the new conservative women in the House. They are pro-life and hate socialism. These ladies will drive Nancy Pelosi crazy, especially when her own fragile majority falls apart. They are a diverse group and confirm another Trump success with minorities, as Liz Peek wrote about Proposition 16 in deep blue California:
While African Americans might have been swayed by the promise of more access to higher education if admissions were based on race, Hispanics and Asians may have thought that affirmative action programs would work to their detriment.
It is noteworthy that despite every major Latino organization promoting Prop 16, every single majority-Hispanic county voted against it.
Last, and not least, the GOP success in state legislatures will mean that 2022 districts will look different than 2020. There are many Democrats who will have to decide between a new career or running in a more conservative-friendly district.
No matter what, Trump leaves behind a stronger and diverse GOP, a better Supreme Court, and a media that will miss him a lot more than they realize.

The Adams moved back to Massachusetts after his defeat to Thomas Jefferson. They spent the rest of their lives there until Mr. Adams, as well as Mr. Jefferson, died on July 4, 1826.
“….he hoped “none but honest and wise men [shall] ever rule under this roof.””
On this day in 1963, millions of people watched Jack Ruby, a Dallas businessman, shoot Lee Harvey Oswald, the alleged killer of President Kennedy. Oswald died shortly after.
It happened as the authorities were taking Oswald to another jail. It also occurred about 48 hours after the assassination of the president.
To say the least, the shooting shocked the nation. It also opened the door to a ton of conspiracy theories about the president's assassination.
For the record, I believe that Oswald shot President Kennedy on his own. I came to that conclusion after reading Gerald Posner's "Case closed" in the 1990's.
Ruby died of cancer in 1967. As far as we know, Ruby never changed his story about why he killed Oswald. Apparently, Ruby did not want Jackie Kennedy to come to a trial. He took that explanation to his grave.
