Among the campaign sidebars on Wednesday was Donald Trump saying his Muslim ban proposal was just a suggestion. All part of a walk to the middle for the general. He also clarified his remarks about POW's and Senator McCain saying they are all heroes whether captured or not.
It's a delicate path for Mr. Trump as he got where he is by being the bull in the china shop and broaching issues no one would but being seen as "Presidential" is a good thnig now as well.
The candidate did pledge an entertaining convention and said he will name his VP then.
And the back hand shot of the day goes to current VP Joe Biden who said he thought Mrs Clinton would win but made sure to point out that old Joe would have been the best President and only decided not to run in the wake of his son's passing.
And after today's meeting with Speaker Ryan, it would be nice not to hear Republicans mouth this line about how they are voting for "the nominee" but not endorsing him. Mr Trump was put were he is because of frustration with DC and DC needs to acknowledge that or face the consequences.
