I can imagine now that Cruz regrets having lied about Carson leaving the race after NH. My intuition tells me that the meeting in the closet might have had something to do with that lie. Cruz was not pleased when Carson refused to “forgive and forget” what he’d done to him. In this instance, Carson showed some backbone. Good for him.

re: #1 majii

I don’t think Cruz is the type of person that feels regrets for using dirty tricks. The closet meeting might have rub Carson the wrong way (not surprised given Cruz) and motivated Carson to stay.

For me, the only upside to watching Trump ascend is thinking about Ted Cruz watching his presidential aspirations slip away.

If Rubio limps into Florida March 15 with only a win in Minnesota to show for his efforts, its entirely possible he will lose there, and with that loss his campaign would be mortally wounded, IMO.

The best possible situation for Hilary/Bernie would be that the Three Stooges all stay in it until the bitter end, with Trump having about 35-40% of the delegates, and the rest split between Rubio, Cruz and maybe Kasich in Ohio or another Rust Belt stronghold.

At that point, over the long summer, there will be much jockeying and backstabbing to try to form some kind of “Coalition of the Loathsome.”

Trump will NOT agree to be a VP. Therefore, it’d be between Cruz & Rubio to see who gets the top slot and who gets VP. Look for party leaders to try to forge a Trump-Rubio ticket, if for no other reason than to screw over Cruz, who they despise with the heat of a thousand suns. If it goes into the convention that way, they may actually unify the disparate pieces of the party; at least until Trump starts popping off again.

If they are disunited going into the convention, then we’re looking at a replay of Chicago in ‘68, with the Tea Party playing the role of the Yippies.

That would be fantastic to watch. The nightmare scenario I thought up this morning would be that Cruz cuts a deal to drop out and endorse Rubio now in return for getting appointed to fill Scalia’s seat on the Supreme Court. They could also offer Kasich something like VP or a Fox News show. But I think their mutual hatred will block that sort of deal and keep Trump in the driver’s seat.

Nevada just put Trump another step closer to the nomination. I have serious doubts that the field will narrow quickly enough to stop him. Best case scenario for the GOP may be a contested convention.
