Democrats face a political minefield ahead of President Donald Trumps historic North Korea meeting: how to root for success for a president they usually want to see flounder.
Trump is reportedly reevaluating the prospects for a significant denuclearization commitment from Kim Jong Un, but if he manages to land a foreign policy coup that has eluded past presidents, it couldnt come at a worse time for Democrats.
The party is planning to center its midterm campaign message around the numerous scandals engulfing the administration. A successful meeting with Kim, however, would give Trump and the GOP already encouraged by record-low unemployment and other positive economic indicators a big morale boost just a few months before the November midterms.
Still, Democrats know they cant cheer for a diplomatic failure that could heighten U.S.-North Korea tensions and potentially trigger a worldwide crisis. So they're raising concerns from the sidelines for now, declaring hope for a Trump-Kim breakthrough, while dismissing it as a long shot at best.....

Pits that much harder cuz they have to cheer against one of their communist dictator soulmates.
BS. Lefties in the media were positively gleeful reporting that the Trump/Kim meeting might be canceled. They would rather have Nork ICBMs pointed at Los Angeles than see Trump succeed at anything.
Sad but true.
Obama administration's Iran nuclear deal Benchmark = what NOT to do.
Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) pointed to provisions of the Iran pact that he said should be included in any agreement with Kim, including third-party inspections of North Koreas nuclear program that can yield verifiable results.
little bammy's "deal" had the Iranian's "self-inspecting." There was ZERO that was verifiable.
Then again this is "turban Durbin" giving advice to President of The United States of America Donald John Trump (love saying that!)
Something repeated by the propaganda arm of the DNC (the newsmedia) until it is proven categorically false, then the news stops reporting it, but it still counts as a scandal
I predict much more gritting (gnashing) of teeth by the dems during the next 6 Years, 7 Months and 29 Days
The Dems would support WWIII if they can blame it on Trump.
Naturally, of course, they’d much prefer that we all assumed room temperature with a North Korean radioactive glow....
