I have written several posts during this interminable primary season, mostly critical of Donald Trump. While my opinion of his politics and policies and temperament has not changed, I must admit that I was completely wrong about many things, foremost of which was his dedication to the race and his ability to slough off attacks from without, and miscues from within.
I find the idea of a Trump presidency profoundly depressing. He will undoubtedly disappoint me and most other conservatives by simply ignoring many of his policy pronouncements, or even worse, follow through on some of the idiotic ones. As for his adherence to the spirit of the Constitution? That won’t happen. We will be in for another four years of extra-legal maneuvering and manipulation by an executive who is unfettered by that quaint document.
But a Hillary Clinton presidency fills me with dread. Yes, a Trump presidency will be awful, but a Clinton presidency will be existentially bad.
