Immediately after the November election, Democrats were divided over how to handle Mr. Trump, with one camp favoring all-out confrontation and another backing a seemingly less risky approach of coaxing him to the center with offers of compromise.

Not really. In the senate it only takes two senators on an issue to vote against a bill to kill the same. There are about five senators which will vote their constituents and policy which is not what President Trump is selling. The second issue is how crazy the house folks get on an issue will turn off the moderates and the votes will not muster, nor will leadership release the same.......it is the same old story, but this time it appears the Democrats have some fight in them.
