Press The Green Button, Man

I would hope that if I had a lifelong dream to become the president of the United States, and somehow managed to achieve that, I'd use that power to alleviate human suffering.  At least a bit.

Every discussion of what Dems can do right now runs into the buzzsaw of reasons why they can't.  Manchinema! The Courts! Fox News will get mad!

Some of these objections are more valid than others, but in general, the election year message of No We Can't is not especially inspiring.  

And if the message is "just give us two more senators, folks," and then that happens, and then nothing happens, well...
