What If ... Trump Wins?

I recently read an article that looked forward to a possible Trump win in November. I learned several things I didn't previously know or at least remember.

First, the convention is not obligated to select the nominee's choice for Vice President. Historically it has, as a courtesy, gone along with the nominee's choice. So then, the party establishment could pick a seasoned statesman to run with Trump.

As far as a cabinet goes, the senate always has to vote on appointees, but could go further by sending the president a list of qualified cabinet choices.

Another possibility that occurred to me, is that some of Sander's supporters might switch to Trump.One interesting possibility is since the Democrats abandoned labor unions and other blue color workers, for the ecological extremists, perhaps Trump will bring them into the Republican Party, in a polar shift.

It's kind of hard to imagine the Republican Party as the new champion of labor, but stranger things have happened. After all, according to Bernie, Clinton is controlled by Wall Street. Hm??
