Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Trump moved from the hostile ground of Wisconsin and hit his home turf in the Northeast.  He killed it tonight, sweeping the GOP primaries.  He still probably won't get to the magic 50%+1 of delegates, but he honestly could.

Maybe...maybe...if Kasich or Cruz wasn't in the race, Trump could have been stopped.  Kasich's continued presence in the race is such a mystery.  I guess he's waiting for the convention.  But that's not going to happen if he stays in the race.  A Catch-22.

But if Trump builds momentum, maybe he could clinch in California.

Clinton wins Maryland and Delaware so far.  I guess those are Southern and don't count.
