The Obama years have been a boom time for America's weapons makers. Since 2009, the United States has approved arms deals worth some $200 billion—more than under any other presidency. The deals include sending Apache helicopters to Qatar, "bunker buster" bombs and cluster munitions to Saudi Arabia, and Hellfire missiles all over the place.
In recent history, a two-term presidency has usually meant the appearance, often in that president's sixth year in office, of a major scandal. The reasons are as unique as the scandals themselves, but what it comes down to is that it's hard to stay in the White House for eight years without something going terribly wrong, whether from the president's own arrogance or venality, or the simple size and complexity of the executive branch.
One thing Hillary Clinton has been able to bank on this election is the association between the Clinton name and economic boom times.
The late 1990s during former President Bill Clinton's administration were a remarkable period: The unemployment rate hit just 4 percent, wages grew at 4 percent, and — most famously — the federal budget actually ran a surplus from 1997 to 2001, peaking at $236 billion in 2000.
If Donald Trump manages to win the general election in November, historians of the future may trace the start of his march to victory to May 13, 2016. That was the day the Obama administration announced that all public schools in the country would have to provide transgendered students access to the bathroom of their choice or face a loss of federal funds (and possible Justice Department lawsuits under Title IX).
But how could this be, when Trump's position on this and other culture-war issues is wishy-washy at best?
Because in recent years elections have been increasingly fought and won in negative terms, with most people voting in favor of one party not so much because they love it as because they despise the other side.
Donald Trump has a knack for nicknames. Low-energy Jeb caught something of Jeb's entitled aura. "Little Marco" got at something truly juvenile and naive about Marco Rubio. And "Lyin' Ted" was an effective way of branding Ted Cruz's dishonesty. Lately, Donald's been trying new nicknames for Hillary Clinton, but he seems to like his original "Crooked Hillary" best.
And his first instinct is best.
