It will be Trump Versus Clinton and the President will be Proved Correct
My reaction to the most recent and I believe epochal development in American politics strikes me as odd. I have watched the Trump sweep and I have watched the Sanders-Clinton head-butting. My sense is that following the President’s remarks yesterday the reading looks like this. Trump clearly continues and becomes more and more acceptable across a spectrum. Hillary emerges as a sort of paragon of reason. Bernie is ultimately hurt by the unfair meme that we do not need two Trumps. And the President’s prescience is thus rewarded. And the ultimate outcome of the whole thing is positive for reasons I have not thought of yet.
