Meanwhile, NO ONE is dropping out on the GOP side. Not Gilmore, not Pataki, not Santorum....OK, Scott Walker.
I don't know what this means in terms of party dynamics. Is the GOP really in the process of a schism? Certainly the drama in the House suggests this. And if there really is a schism developing, so that Rand Paul thinks he can linger around the margins and somehow....something...where does it end?
Especially after Benghazi the Sad Trombone Musical opened and closed on the same night, Clinton's path to the nomination is pretty secure. Right now, Trump is shooting himself in the foot once again with demeaning tweets about Iowa. Will it matter? Who knows? Carson continues to say things that suggest some form of paranoid delusion is at play. And Rubio waits and waits.
I know Trump is the "story" of this cycle, but that's so freaking lazy. The story is that he has a constituency in the GOP. Meanwhile, Clinton rolls merrily along.
