Super Wednesday

March 1, 2016

As it will appear to us who live just this side of the dateline – Tuesday in the US is already Wednesday here. This is the lay of the land:

And for those who are wondering what Hillary is up to:

And what amazes me more than anything else are the number of people supposedly on the right who would vote for Hillary ahead of Trump. And for added interest, there is this Why they hate Trump written by someone who doesn’t much seem to like Trump either. But he does include this which is much to the point about a lot of things:

BLITZER: You said this about the ongoing conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians – I’m quoting you now: ‘Let me be sort of a neutral guy. I don’t want to say whose fault it is, I don’t think it helps.’

“TRUMP: Right.

“BLITZER: Here’s the question. How do you remain neutral when the U.S. considers Israel to be America’s closest ally in the Middle East?

“TRUMP: Well, first of all, I don’t think they do under President Obama because I think he’s treated Israel horribly, all right? I think he’s treated Israel horribly. I was the grand marshall down 5th Avenue a number of years ago for the Israeli Day Parade, I have very close ties to Israel. I’ve received the Tree of Life Award and many of the greatest awards given by Israel.

“As president, however, there’s nothing that I would rather do to bring peace to Israel and its neighbors generally. And I think it serves no purpose to say that you have a good guy and a bad guy.

“Now, I may not be successful in doing it. It’s probably the toughest negotiation anywhere in the world of any kind. OK? But it doesn’t help if I start saying, “I am very pro-Israel, very pro, more than anybody on this stage.” But it doesn’t do any good to start demeaning the neighbors, because I would love to do something with regard to negotiating peace, finally, for Israel and for their neighbors.

“And I can’t do that as well – as a negotiator, I cannot do that as well if I’m taking … sides.”

Whatever it is, it is not anti-Israel and does sound like someone who might know a thing or to about negotiation. But the last word will go to Steve Hayward at Powerline, Apologia Pro Vita Trump. He really is sorry that it has come to this, but this is what it has come to:

I’m sure lots of voters don’t think Trump has what it takes to be a great president. But he is the ideal person to disrupt a political class that deserves a hard smash in the mouth. This is why Trump is going to win.

And then, of course, there are others who do think he has what it takes to be a great president indeed. I can only hope we are going to find out for ourselves over the next eight years.
