11. He should spend it squashing the right wing like a bug
He would do the nation a big favor if he totally destroyed their credibility and in particular their media/propaganda efforts.

It would have a lasting benefit and would clear the political stage for progress on any number of fronts.

I'm not sure he has the political capital needed to accomplish this, but he sure has more than any Democrat has had since the time of JFK.
