Me, sure — but I mean: who else?
James Comey! Check it out. In small part:
. . . the way Republicans are acting today means they will inevitably lose power, and for a very long time — an exile they will richly deserve.
But neither party will disappear because the American center — that great lump of us clustered around the middle — always holds. Where the center is, exactly, moves over time — we changed the world by embracing same-sex marriage, for example — but it never goes away. That lump is our national ballast. To survive, our two political parties compete for that center, forcing them to change as we do.

Only take that bet with money you can truly afford to lose!
