Marco Rubio (R-FL) said, correctly, in his failed primary campaign that it is dangerous to have Donald Trump in control of nuclear weapons. Now, this same Rubio has pledged undying fealty to making Donald Trump the next president of the United States. His reason is that a President Hillary Clinton would be awful.

Want to make a political scientist's head explode? Explain to them how Donald Trump is a winner because he is leading polls and winning crowded primaries. In the back of their mind, the political scientist is thinking "he's 'winning' because the vote is fractured," and resisting the urge to say "the worst way to pick someone for office is to just take the person with the most votes, but not a majority."

Scenario one. President Sanders or Clinton, unlike President Obama on his first day on the job, are faced with a GOP controlled House and a GOP controlled Senate. Scenario two. Either President Trump, Cruz or Rubio, on their first day in office, faces a Democratic-controlled Senate. Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell is determined to do everything to prevent scenario number one from happening. He is absolutely horrified at the thought of scenario number two happening.

"This above all: to thine own self be true," Polonius tells his son Laertes in the first act of William Shakespeare's Hamlet. And the bard's advice is good, as we find that voters may be picking candidates based on what they think they stand for, instead of the real stand on the issues.

Whatever misgivings he might have, Marco Rubio could not refuse an invitation from mayors of 12 Florida coastal communities to discuss their climate change concerns. Politics dictated that he meet with the mayors, several of whom are Republicans, to confer on a subject not as high on his agenda as on theirs.
