The author expresses hope that the 44th president of the U.S. will be an advocate for the improvement of health care in the country. He anticipates the next president will look back at the damage caused by those who have tried to use federal healthcare policy as a reward to friends and as a hammer to enemies. He is also hoping that the next president will understand the relationship between the future prosperity and health of the nation.
