Hillary is worried about the GOP dumping Trump


And so am I. But not that much!

Or perhaps that Trump will exit the race voluntarily before the GOP convention. In an otherwise straightforward article about Hillary Clinton’s running-mate selection process, Politico buries this fascinating lede.

The selection process, however, is colored by new uncertainty among Democratic donors and Clinton allies who are no longer convinced that Donald Trump is sure to be the GOP nominee. A big advantage of holding their convention second, Democrats said, was being able to make a final pick with full knowledge of the GOP ticket.

I read this to imply a couple things. First, Clinton will have an heir and a spare in mind: Her ideal running mate to announce should Trump officially secure the GOP nomination, and a more defensive pick should Republicans somehow deny it to him. Second, and relatedly, we’re unlikely to know who her running mate will be until late July.

  1. One can only imagine the chaos if Rethugs manage to dump Drumpf. Like a scientist creating a highly virulent strain of anthrax, Republicans have carefully nurtured their hate-filled, racist, and bigoted base.
    To deny them at the nth hour will likely let the nasty genie out of the bottle.
