1. A divided Republican Party would be something to hope for.

The question is how much do anti-Trump Republicans care about the sought-after Trump base? It really is a question I can't answer. Also, generally, what becomes of the Trump base? How valuable are they really to the GOP? Will they disperse? Do Republicans sincerely believe Trump will run again in 2024? Is that feasible or possible, given his rapid physical and cognitive decline?

I keep thinking about Berlusconi in Italy, how scandal and indictments would carry him away from positions of power and how he would always return, his followers intact, no matter how disgraced he became. That fucker is 84 years old, and he's been a dangerous, anti-Democratic and destructive fixture of Italian politics since the early 90s.
