Lock in President Clinton

W&D remembers the ending of that excellent movie, Bridge Over the River Kwai [1], when the idealistic British PoW leader, played by Alec Guinness, who had successfully co-operated with the Japanese to build a railway bridge, realises in the end the folly of his actions. 

And he falls on the plunger that commandos had placed to blow up the bridge.  His last dramatic words being, "What have I done?"

What have I done

American voters the day after Election Day: "What have I done?"

And so, W&D is moved to ask, if on the Wednesday morning after the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November and Americans wake up to a President Trump, will the nation collectively shriek: "What have we done?"  Because it would spell the dawn of an era of government dysfunction, the end of freer trade, the beginning an American isolationism and the endorsement of xenophobia by the so-called leader of the free world.

No, it won't happen.  Americans may be many things, but in the end they will come to their senses.  And not vote for Trump. 

Trump seems to have wrapped up the nomination for the Republicans.  Which wraps up Hillary Clinton as POTUS.

Lock it in.
