Hillary Clinton is the presumptive Democratic Party nominee and the first woman ever to be chosen by a major US Party. Who is Donald Trumps’s best ally against Hillary? It’s Bernie Sanders, the runner-up in the Democratic primary, who just lost California and yet won’t quit. He continues to run for the nomination, even though he no longer has a chance of winning short of Hillary being indicted for crimes she committed as Secty. of State when she used a private non-secure e-mail system (anything can happen).
But, no-one seems to be asking why is Bernie Sanders running in the Democratic Party primary when he characterizes himself as a socialist. The Democratic Party is NOT a socialist party, and Bernie should be kicked out of it! On the other hand, Donald Trump is not a true Republican. He has no truly conservative credentials, and through a series of statements and opinions he has managed to antagonize most of the Republicans who have so far endorsed him. Could there be a revolt at the Republican convention against Trump? Very unlikely, since he has the votes, so the Republican faithful will have to get used to the idea that the party is changing.
However, in the Democratic Party it’s the status quo, with Pres. Obama’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton she will in effect become Obama’s third term. Now I know a lot of people will vote against this, they don’t want to see the continuation of a failed and weak foreign policy and a confused over-costly domestic policy. They would rather take the chance with Trump of a stronger and somewhat adventurous foreign policy and a more conservative domestic policy. Many undecided voters are hoping that Trump will start to be more careful in his statements, will not confuse the campaign for President with his private issues (such as his legal cases) and will get himself some good advisers and some experienced speech writers. And he should use the teleprompter from now on. If he starts acting Presidential then he may yet beat Hillary-Obama.
