Crying Out of One Eye
“I will be totally pledging my allegiance to the Republican Party and the conservative principles for which it stands.”
That’s what Donald Trump said yesterday while at Trump Tower in NYC, and he meant it, really. Trump agreed not to run as an independent if he lost the nomination and the GOP breathed a collective sigh of relief — except — really guys?
Maybe it’s my inherent distrust of the political process, of political pledges in general, or the Machiavellian way that politicians make and break alliances, but something tells me there’s a fair amount of bluff and bluster here and it’s not all going to go as planned.
