We are going to hear much about the Republican race being between Trump and Rubio trying to minimize Cruz as the Republican Party can only beat Trump if they can put every last non-Trump Vote to one candidate even if it was a more popular Donald, that being Donald Duck. Cruz and Rubio are going to continue to split the voters leaving Trump slowly eclipsing them both right out of the delegate count, especially as the winner take all states start appearing rather than the proportional representation they are facing now. The results in the Republican primaries will not change the fight but simply serve to fortify the three man race plus Kasich will claim he has not been ruled out and he will come roaring back once he wins Ohio which is becoming more unlikely as the delegates are divided up and him just missing threshold after threshold. But the Republicans will continue as advertised but the Democrats the fat lady may be singing.
Probably the stake through the heart of the Sanders campaign was losing Massachusetts as well as every other state looking being eclipsed in the eye. Bernie Sanders may as well thank his supporters and workers for their faith and hope in him and recognize that illary has won the nomination with little if any potential for doubt. So, now illary can campaign on a low keyed style taking extra care to not say anything which might be used against her in the general elections. All illary need do is keep her mainstay base of minorities to remain committed and have a level of excitement to produce them at the polls in November. She can float trial balloons testing how they play with the public. Bernie Sanders cannot claim to have any hope when the only states won so far are New Hampshire, Vermont, and Oklahoma while losing Alabama, Georgia, Iowa, Nevada, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. These were the results in the early states and the projections look very much like same as above with illary winning and winning. We could go with so many ways of trivializing the results claiming the fat lady is singing, turn out the lights the party’s over, or put a fork in him, he’s done. So, what is next for illary?
The questions now will revolve around who will illary choose as her running mate, her Secretary of State, her this, that and the other. That will be the news cycle over and over as they try to keep illary in the news reminding everybody how popular illary is with so many different demographics making it appear so clear that she will win the all-important elections come November. They will mostly avoid those death subjects such as her e-mail server, her mishandling of top secret and more secure information, Benghazi, telling lies to bereaved parents about why their children gave their lives, and every other scandal she hides from the public with the complicity of the mainstream media. This election may hinge on whether or not illary will be indicted which may remain hanging over her head with many claiming the election is also about whether or not illary wins and avoids a messy trial dominating every new hour. The Democrat Party now has the luxury of knowing who their candidate will be for the election in November. This can also be a downside as they will face the challenge of keeping their candidate in each news cycle in a positive light avoiding the obvious sinkholes.
What did Super Tuesday do to the two parties can be summarized in two words, illary and Trump. That will most likely be the candidates the American public will have to choose between. This may be a more interesting race than the pundits might believe as both parties will be facing a single challenge of getting out their voters. Both candidates will necessarily need to announce their preferred appointments to the major cabinet posts such as to define them beyond their own persona of simply thirsting for power. This election will necessarily be a referendum on which of the far from perfect candidates, Trump and illary, will be capable of bringing forth the votes while leaving the base for the other side from awakening. If history is any measure, illary would be more likely to manage such a feat as the Democrats have traditionally been better able of getting their voters to the polls and pulling out the close races but that will be made more difficult with their having a wounded candidate in illary just as the Republicans apparently will also have apparently an injured and bloodied candidate in Donald Trump as he will have challengers continuing through the remainder of the primaries until he freezes all others out in the delegate count. Let the games begin.
