I hope the DNC follows your advice! But, if the DNC and Hillary's campaign hold firm on the format Trump will accuse her of refusing to debate - oh, twenty times a day. I just hope that his poll numbers quickly drop into the low 40 with a downward trajectory. That is really the only way to silence him. He doesn't deal well with rejection. I would laugh my ass off if he dropped out AFTER winning the nomination - once his numbers drop below 40% and all Republicans are in a panic.

Turmp simply denies the reality of any criticism of his person or performance. I have noted before that denial is the strongest of all psychic defenses - until it fails. The problem is that, when it fails, it fails catastrophically. I would prefer that he not be the president when that happens. We are much more likely to elect a crazy president than to be able to survive that presidency.

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere." (But it helps!)
