fading anti-Trump fervor and why Oprah would be a good choice for the Dems

David Brooks' take sounds right to me. I would add the likelihood that the narrative will inevitably get old/tired at some point, esp. given its frequent hystericism and the success of the economy. (at least for now, but probably well into the future). The latter would, ironically, be quite reminiscent of the non-policy attacks on Bill Clinton.

In policy terms, Oprah certainly would be better than Hillary or Bernie. One might pick Hillary over her, if one subscribes to the notion that experience (even bad experience) is important.

Another benefit: it would help people quit pretending that national politics hasn't become entertainment, the lamer aspects of team sports, grasping for power, and the subject of various other idolatries.
