A Trump nomination is in no one’s interest. Democrats included.

“Sometime in the next decade, Donald Trump will almost certainly cease to be a major force in public life. There are many ways that could happen, some better and some worse. The former president might decline to seek his party’s nomination in 2024. If he does run again, he might lose the primary to someone such as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. And if he manages to win the primary, he might lose to the Democrat — probably President Biden. Or he might win and enjoy another four years in office, cementing his hold over the party until his age finally sidelines him. Now an exercise: What’s the best outcome? … I think this is an easy question: Trump was a uniquely terrible president, and the further he stays from power, the better off we will be. Unfortunately, that view is far from universal.” (07/28/22)
