The story is circulating this weekend that high-level operatives in the Republican Party are preparing a third-party candidacy to challenge Donald Trump and the winner of the Democratic nomination in the general elections this fall. Such a candidacy would be a mistake for two major reasons.
Stuart Stevens illuminates his anti-Trump insights on social media while Ron Reagan reminds us about the last contested convention in '76. What should GOP elites do now that they can't live with or without Trump? Also: Will McConnell's SCOTUS-Senate sit-down strike sink "the party of hell no!"?
This time, the goal was not finding someone who could beat Trump to the 1,237 delegates needed for a first ballot victory in Cleveland in July, but instead simply to deny Trump a first ballot victory.
A nationally-televised presidential debate stage is, indeed, neither the time nor the place, one would think.

It's time for diplomacy's critics to stop blaming the negotiations' supporters for bringing up the possibility of war. Now that the heavyweights of the neoconservative world have all weighed in on "a few days" of military strikes on Iran, does anybody doubt what Plan B looks like?
