A lot of us are already resigned to being the “Trump people.”

The last thing we want is to be the next “Buckle up, Republicans.”

But it’s going to take more than that.

Trump has unleashed a new breed of GOP candidates that aren’t so “Trumpy” that they can’t win without being Trumpy.

And they’re going to win, in part because the country is so angry at Washington that the GOP has been unable to find the common ground to reach.

This election is shaping up to be a turning point.

But we don’t know what we don.

The Republicans aren’t going to get their ducks in a row by attacking Obama and Hillary.

They’re going for it, but only by using every trick in the book.

They need to think long and hard about how they’re trying to win a political battle that is going to define this country for generations to come.
