If I had to pick a core theme of today's show, I'd say it's focused on the desire of some who want so badly to be considered anti-establishment that they sacrifice principle to get there. This subject came up in the private Facebook group just this morning and given the mountain of stories I have relating to Super Tuesday I thought it wise to speak on it.
Last night was a big night for Rubio, but not in a good way. His crushing defeat by Donald Trump in his home state of Florida put the final nail in the coffin of his campaign. It's been over for Rubio for a while, but I think he thought if he could squeeze out a win in Florida he could hope to limp along to the convention hoping Trump didn't have the delegates to secure the nomination.
That certainly appears to be the strategy for Kasich, who doesn't stand a prayer of being elected president. The real battle now is not between Trump and Cruz but rather between Trump and the GOP, who are likely to mount a fight at the convention to prevent him from being the parties nominee.
Today Darren and I talk about how this might play itself out. I'll admit we run off the rails a bit into fantasy, but that 's what makes it fun. Give it a listen and hear for yourself.
