If Donald Trump goes on to win the nomination, and it is a long road ahead, the man who finished second tonight may well be the running mate. Governor John Kasich could give you Ohio and is seen as a serious and experienced person who stayed out of the nasty lane and kept cordial relations with Mr. Trump.
Of course the flies in the ointment are JEB ! who will be emboldened by 12% and his war chest, and Ted Cruz who was putting in time in New England while he waits to go down South.
There is also Marco Rubio, who while winged in NH, will still plow on. I suspect Chris Christie is gone but you never know.
A lot of this revolves around money, but there is really no reason not to stay in till March 1.
I am watching Hillary Clinton's concession which is really a campaign rally in prime time in which she hit every progressive hot button. She pledged an aggresive campaign in all fifty states.
