It looks as if we Americans in November will have a choice between Hillary Clinton, a defender of the status quo, and Donald Trump, a right-wing populist.
I don’t think Donald Trump can be elected President, but, then again, I didn’t think, six months ago, that he would become the Republican nominee.
If he is elected, I know who the Democratic establishment will blame. It will be Bernie Sanders, for arousing false hopes.
Their underlying assumption is that conservative Republicans have the power to bring about change, but we liberal Democrats do not, and therefore the best we can hope for is to ward off the Donald Trumps. This attitude makes the Donald Trumps inevitable.

I wouldn’t be surprised if President Trump nominates Ted Cruz to the Supreme Court.
