So, who wins when Trump's campaign implodes on 11/8?

There are a couple of folks who played it smart, and none of them are named Marco Rubio.

Top long time winner? John Kasich. His refusal to accept Trump or his antics gives him a leg up on the rest of te scrum.

Second place? Possibly Mike Pence, only because his demeanor is so anti-trump. His ideas are so scary, that they are bound to attract the Trumpians who still support the Gropin-Fuehrer.

George Pataki? Other than the fact that he has become so invisible as to give Saran Wrap a run for its money, the former gov of NY may be good in the long run.

Ted Cruz? He is probably the most problematic of the group. True believers love his idiotic ideas. And true Trumpians trust him as far as they can throw him. The one thing he has in common with Trump is his self-serving ego, and drive to beat up all opponents. But, the stain runs deep with this one, my little padawan.

As for the rest of the Klown Kar, there really are no winners. Scott Walker? As dumb and crafty as he is, he is tainted by a trumpian stain. Sanitorium? On what flat earth would he have a chance? Ever? Rick Perry? Nope. Carli Fiorina? Maybe she can raise her profile, but not on a national level in a sustainable fashion. Rand Paul? Who? Mike Huckabee? As stale as three week old bread.

Who is completely destroyed? Rudi Giuliani, Chris Christie, Ben Carson, Jeb Bush. Not only will the footage of them be left on the editing floor, the entire script will be rewritten to remove them from reality - about the same way as the political world has already passed them by.

I really don't see any other potential winners in the GOP. Whiners, yes. Angry, nasty, vile attakers against Hillary? Sure. But winners? Nary a one.

3. The students at Liberty University (as opposed to

its president).

And yes, Kasich comes out a bit ahead. Reince Priebus, not so much.

And Katrina Pierson? She'll probably strap on that bullet necklace and go tearing through the country strangling people with her bare hands.

6. Good topic

I agree on most of your positions but I think Jeb Bush is now seen as more of a sane moderate choice. A Bush....the sane choice? Sadly he is compared to the rest. Yes he was meek and boring in the debates. But he could sharpen up in time for 2020.

And on the other side, Ted Cruz. He gained a modicum of respect when he seemingly stood up for his wifes honor and refused to endorse Trump at the RNC. But then tumbled back down the sewer by re-endorsing the man that debased and publically insulted his wife. And now he is also tied to the whims of how well his choice for President does.

7. yup on both counts.

However, I suspect that given the age of most of the candidopes on the GOP side, we might witness a yute movement for any new effort. While Rubio fits that parameter, he is such a doofus on the issues, not to mention the waffle iron tattooed to his behind, that no matter how hard to they to refurbish his image, they will fail.

I remember changing the oil on an old, falling apart Rambler that my grandfather sold to me, and no matter how many times I changed it, it still ran like crap. That is what will happen to Rubio. The raw material is simply unworkable.

8. Merrick Garland wins

The senate will race to approve him for the Supreme Court, lest Clinton name someone more liberal.
