Nobody Does It Better
So, okay. Among the world's major democracies, we Americans are a little slow on the uptake when it comes to transitions. We admit it. Take Canada: There's no way we would have been able to pull off the switch from the ever-unappealing Tory Prime Minister Stephen Harper to our fave new PM, Justin Trudeau — which took place last year in a mere few weeks.
No, we Americans need months. So both of our major parties' Presidential candidates have begun planning for the handover from the Obama Administration to whoever the 45th President will be.
John Podesta is in charge of the Clinton team — which somehow, looking at the polls today, we think is the more likely of the two. Donald Drumpf's pipe dream is allegedly being coordinated by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie — who we think might not be getting a lot of work done, seeing as how he's distracted by his candidate bashing the Khan family so much.
Suffice to say that if the Presidential race settles into the patterns that it's in today, Americans can expect the smoothest transition in the history of the US Presidency. It won't quite measure up to Canadian standards, but it will come close. We cats PURR.
