Trump is going to be the nominee.
For this not to happen he would have to die, quit, or reveal some GIHUGENT scandal. (Caution on the last – it could help him.)
The message to moderate, persuadable, right leaning family and friends needs to be “a D President won’t do much…we will still have the R Congress… .”
We have been the laughingstock of the world before. We can do it again. But we need to think carefully about apathy and indifference that can result from anger and frustration.
So what our first choice D candidate didn’t get in? Mine is not even in the race (because he’s not electable even though, maybe because, he is a successful Governor in California).
It’s Trump. Everyone needs to persuade the middle, draw out more detail from the new guy than “it will be great,” and get out the vote. Voter registration, turnout is all it ever is.
ps- the open thread needs to resume at 6am. Bring back elected fpe- we got the easy stuff done.
