Even though he lost the popular vote, Donald Trump is the legitimate president-elect, and I share both Hillary Clinton's admonition to keep an open mind and President Obama's wish for Trump's success.
But this is not the time for amnesia. Trump's campaign may not have featured much in the way of concrete policy, but he and his team did make a number of promises, including a first-100-days agenda, some of which reads like a hit list against progressive priorities.
The agenda raises two questions. First, can he pull it off? Second, will he choose to do so?
Since his victory, Trump has made some conciliatory sounds, but we cannot yet know how seriously to take him. He clearly has no reservoir of trust from those who opposed him. Moreover, some of what he's saying, particularly about Obamacare, doesn't make sense.
