    It's mental. Part of me is relieved that weird Christian God fanatic Cruz is gone but ...the horror of it all.

    Imagine how much of a thundering prick Cruz had to be that the rest of his party preferred Trump to him.
    That's an impressive level of prickishness.

    It's great news

    Hillary gets in. Dems replace Scalia and after a few months, RBG retires and we stack the deck.

    Donald Trump, Presumptive Nominee

    A good, albeit brief piece. One of the comments asks the question - who will be his V.P. nomination? He'll need someone 'centrist' if he's to have any hope, that should rule out Palin. Chris Christie jumped to Trump's side early on if I remember correctly, could be an outside chance. No other names comes to mind immediately, maybe he'll pick a complete outsider.

    Who knows, you'd have to think he'd want someone that will steady the base and be an attack dog on HRC
    Maybe Christie fits that bill.

    Steady the base yeah but he'll relish attacking Hillary himself, this is likely gonna get extremely dirty, I can't wait.
    Any ideas as to who Hillary may select?

    When Cruz dropped out last night I turned on Fox News to see what they were saying, because I thought with them being so hostile towards Trump up till now where'd they'd go from here would be interesting and that Bill O'Reilly guy was on saying that Christie will likely be Trump's AG if he got elected.

    It won't be Liz Warren

    Conventional wisdom says your pick should shore up a weakness.
    Don't know if she'll want to appease Bernie's gang or the centrists.
    I'd love to see her go rogue and take someone like John Huntsman, appeal to Never-Trump Republicans. But no way that happens.

    Yeah, he's gone hard right since he decided to run himself. I was just trying to think of someone that has crossed party lines - he's an Obama-appointed ambassador.
    Or like David Gergen that worked for Reagan and Clinton.

    How smart is Donald Trump?

    A very interesting question here from Kevin Drum

    Has Trump been clever or lucky?

    He didn't waste his time on the minnows and weirdoes and allowed them to flame out.
    The only one who could have united the party against him (Rubio) was driven out early.
    Leaving just Cruz, who nobody likes, left at the end.

    Was this just the set of fortuitous circumstances that left a no nothing blowhard the last man standing or a deliberate strategy by Trump?

    I could see him beating Clinton if it goes well, but bizarrely I couldn't see him beating Sanders. Oh well...

    I'd like to see him beat Clinton but if it was him v Sanders I'd go for Sanders all day long. Bizarre.

    She hasn't because it is still posibile for him for him to get the nomination.

    It's a mathematical possibility but he needs to win every remaining state by a huge margin to do so.

    I real terms he's toast.

    Hilary has already moved on and releasing anti Donald adds.
