I will make a prediction: either Clinton or Trump will find the job of president most unsatisfying.  Both seem to be motivated by power, and both may be surprised at how little power they have in that office.  Reasoning: a CEO can do pretty much whatever the hell he or she wants if he or she owns the company.  Perfect place for a power-addicted demagogue.  But in the US presidency, he or she is watched constantly and congress will check the power of that office.

Regardless of how it comes out, I can imagine the probability of a successful impeachment in the next term as high.
