No Crystal Ball

I have no crystal ball and no way of predicting what is likely to happen to the Republican Party after Super Tuesday's events yesterday.

But people are now calling Trump the "presumptive" candidate, a technically meaningless appellation, but one with significance in the realm of perceptions.  I am not ready tonight to issue any profound predictions about what is going to happen.  But at this time it would seem the only way to stop Trump as far as Republicans are concerned would be to mount a third party effort with Romney or some other candidate of like nature at the top of the ticket.  This would split the Republican vote, electing the Democrat, but denying the ever-threatening Trump the office.

The main problem would be getting ballot access at this stage.  I assume that would not be an insurmountable problem but surely Lindsay Graham, the Koch brothers, and others of this nature will have to move quickly.
