Donald Trump has achieved an important milestone. Winning big in the New Hampshire and South Carolina Republican primaries has given him "big mo," as President George H.W. Bush used to call big momentum.
At this rate, Trump could well be the Grand Old Party's next presidential nominee unless he does something devastatingly offensive to his supporters, such as, for example, saying something nice about President Barack Obama.
Barring that, Bruce Bartlett may well get his wish for a Trump nomination, whether he really wants to or not.
Bartlett, 64, is an author, historian, economist and veteran of the Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations who describes himself as an endangered species: a "moderate Republican."
So why does he want Trump to win the nomination? Because Bartlett wants to see the billionaire developer and TV star face the presumptive Democratic nominee, frontrunner Hillary Clinton -- and lose.
