GOP: Delete your presumptive nominee

Daily News Columnist Will Bunch has Philly Attytood!! I urge you to visit Will's column often and participate in Disqus comments section.

"I write these words as a liberal voter and as a student of political science: I fully believe that a principled conservative coming out of Cleveland would probably -- emphasis on "probably" -- have a better chance of defeating Hillary Clinton than Trump does. So, yes, I'm calling for something that would actually make the vision of a more progressive America, which I share with millions of others, a little less likely. But I've seen America borne backwards by right-wing presidents, and survive. I don't believe America, as we know it, could survive a Trump presidency.

At key moments in U.S. history, political figures have risen to the occasion and become profiles in courage. The bipartisan congressional probes of Richard Nixon is one such instance that some of us still remember. It's not too late for patriotic Republicans to again rise to the occasion. Change the party rules in Cleveland. Allow the delegates to vote their conscience on the first ballot -- and dump Donald Trump this summer. I guarantee that history would remember you as heroes."
