Yeah, I'm posting a lot today. What the Hell, I'm feeling prollific.
If the Republican leadership wanted to get an optimal result for them, they could get a bunch of Republican leaders together for one TV ad. The Bushes, George F. Will, the Congressional leadership who was willing, the Governors who were willing. The only common denominator has to be that they oppose Donald Trump.
Each speak a sentence in turn.
"We are faced with an unusual election. Our party has nominated a man who is not qualified to be President and who would make an awful President, endangering American democracy, governing counter to American values, and destroying America's relations with our allies. Hillary Clinton will make a better President than Donald Trump would.
"However, we are Republicans. We know it is better for the country if our party retains control of both houses of Congress. So this is what we want you to do:"
"Vote but split your vote. Vote for Hillary for President but vote Republican on the rest of your ballot.
"Doing thins represents the best you can do for your country. We need to stop Donald Trump and we need to keep Congress.
"Vote Hillary for President, Republicans for everything else. But please vote. Your country needs you."
They probably won't do this. If they did, they could have their cake and eat it. And they might be able to save their party.
