Is anyone else eager to see Mr. Trump inaugurated as our next president? One obvious benefit to the Republic will be the end of Mr. Obama's power. But another benefit will be an end to all of this drama over recounts, “faithless electors,” and other distractions designed to create a cloud of doubt and negativity over Mr. Trump's victory over Hillary.
