It is interesting when people play the “what-if game.” Many people are wondering what a Donald Trump presidency would look like. They would be better served wondering what a Ted Cruz presidency would have looked like. The GOP has played the “no compromise” game for the entire Obama presidency, which led our country to become frustrated with the Washington establishment.
Cruz played the “no compromise” game with his own party. He filibustered items that the GOP was proposing. He called Mitch McConnell a liar on the floor of the Senate.
The one thing you get with Trump is his willingness to work things out — a new concept for Republicans, but it might be worth a try. If you’d been hoping for Cruz over Trump, be careful what you hope for. Perhaps a better solution would be to just say Hillary.
