My first reaction to the detente between Ted Cruz and John Kasich is a question. What the hell took them so long?
Predictably, Donald Trump had a temper tantrum accusing Cruz and Kasich of engaging in collusion.
No, Cruz and Kasich did not engage in collusion much less do anything illegal. They made a deal. Hasn't Trump been telling us he's great at making deals? Apparently not so much.
Can Trump honestly tell us his people weren't trying to make a deal with Kasich? If they were, Trump isn't neither much of a negotiator nor does he hire great people.
Of course, the Cruz-Kasich detente will motivate Trump's supporters. But will it expand Trump's base? I doubt it.
If this deal sticks does this mean Kasich becomes Cruz's running mate?
We live in interesting times. Perhaps too interesting.
