What Ted Cruz Must Do to Become President

My central wish this time around is that Hillary not become president.

Some here don’t care whether Hillary beats Trump, because they loathe Trump.  I care.

Cruz has two challenges:  getting the nomination, and beating Hillary.

Ted, here’s what you must do to get the nomination and to beat Hillary.  You must do two things:  [1] establish that you are independent of the Establishment, and [2] establish that you favor free trade and American jobs.

You’ve done #2.

Now you need to step forward, offend many, and say, “I’m beholden to no one.”  Trump has done THAT.  That’s why he’s ahead.  People buy into Trump because he’s not a professional politician.  You, Ted, need to establish that though you are a professional politician, you are independent.
