Viewers of Donald Trump's coming out party for his apparent "forced choice" vice presidential running mate, Governor Mike Pence of Indiana, might rightly wonder why he spent almost as much time holding forth on the evils of something he called the "Johnson Amendment" than he did on the virtues of Mike Pence.
Donald Trump would undoubtedly like a running mate whose views and personality are similar to his. I can't think of a better mate for him than Newt Gingrich, who at times seems Trumpier than Trump. Here's my pitch for a Trump/Gingrich ticket, which focuses on their similar approaches to life and leadership.
Some of you feel removed from the tragedy because you think these victims are not like you. Well, the truth is they are not like you. They understand prejudice. They understand what it feels like to be ostracized for nothing more than being who you are. They have a wisdom you are not likely to ever know.
