Snuggling on the sofa with my eight-year daughter one evening, a commercial for the nightly news hinted of a sensational story about the 2016 political candidates. My daughter looked at me, with sadness in her eyes, "Mommy, I don't want Trump to be president." "Why is that, baby?" I ask. "Because half of my friends would disappear from school!"

Many political pundits accuse Donald Trump of blowing his own horn. So much that they sound like a broken record. But maybe it's time they changed their tune. Because when it comes to his presidential campaign, Mr. Trump may have to march to the beat of his own drum.
