If only Trump had style, wit, and a keen political intelligence.

I’ve been skimming through a review of William F. Buckley’s book on his campaign for mayor of New York City in 1965, a year after Barry Goldwater’s trouncing by LBJ.

Buckley breaks all the campaign rules and conducts the kind of authentic, daring campaign that Donald Trump might run if Trump had style, wit, and a keen political intelligence.”

There are always lessons for us to learn. Learning never stops, or at least shouldn’t. I wish Trump had that intellectual curiosity. But, alas, he doesn’t and never will.
