Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee for president

At least that's what this Washington Post article by Chris Cillizza (predicts?) (foretells?) (warns):

 And, the delegate math is close to conclusive: Donald Trump will be extremely close to the 1,237 delegates he needs to formally claim the party's nomination by the end of the primary process.

Our next president.

Our next president?

That might be good or bad news, depending on your viewpoint. My noggin tells me that it's bad for Republicans, and the Republic for which we stand.  However, polls tell us that Trump would fare the worst against Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton in the general election.. So, it's up to other Republicans to coalesce behind one not-trump candidate. Jeb Bush gave up his race and his potential delegates in a courageous act of self-immolation. But apparently the egos of the remaining field--Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and John Kasich--are too huuuuggggeee to do anything as brave and self-sacrificing. (I prefer Rubio or Kasich who do best against either Democrat in head-to-head polls.

Whether it's Trump, Clinton and Sanders that wins the election, Republicans, you will be the ones most responsible for putting one of them in the White House and jeopardizing America. When are we going to learn?

  • You left out the ego of uncle ben it's quiet huuugggeee too.

  • You're right. I just forgot about him. As many voters seem to be doing. Nice guy, though.

  • Though not a Trump supporter, I would roll the dice and vote for him versus a third and posssbily fourth term for Obama.

    If Ronald Reagan were brought back to life it might be too late for a Republic where the majority of the population wants free stuff, thinks capitalism (the lemonade stand on the corner) is evil, believes there is no need for borders, thinks that the US is responsible for the rise of Islamo-Fascists and where black live matter only where there are TV cameras and not on the south side.

    The fork is already out. I'm just afraid to stick it in the Republic.
