I think the first Republican congressman that comes out strongly against Trump....

will be the rising star for the next election. I can't believe that one of them hasn't done it already. It would be a gamble, but the upside is huge.

3. They are waiting for two failures.

1. The horrendous health care failure violating Trump promise of something better.
2. Close behind and related is the budget directly linked to health care.

Even when they win they lose and cannot govern. Remember the number 2 Ted Cruz he is a poison ivy salad. My prediction is going into 2018 with either no accomplishments due to hopeless stalemates or passing something everyone hates. Someday a Republican will step up (will not be Cruz).

4. Yes, and Mika was on Colbert saying this the other night, so this

talking point is gaining traction in the media. Joe said he can't be a Republican anymore and switched to Independent, and Mika was questioning why more Republicans aren't speaking out about Trump.
