Notes on a Phenomenon

On Tuesday night, my daughter and her friends went down to Claremont, New Hampshire to see Donald Trump in action. She and her chums range from the not terribly political to those with the usual enthusiasms of youth, so they went mainly because Trump’s a hot ticket, and we don’t get a lot of those in the Granite State. Her only other candidate encounter this season was at the North Haverhill Fair last summer when Lindsey Graham pounced outside the 4-H barn, no doubt with an eye to recruiting her for one of his “rotating first ladies”.

    As Steyn notes, Donald Trump has shifted the discussions Americans, their media and politicians are having, and perhaps even the country’s overall … mood …. for lack of a better word. I just pray that this shift will prove permanent and not depend upon Trump – or any individual – for its continuance.
