Latest Donald Trump win creates a GOP ‘Sophie’s Choice’
Donald Trump’s stirring primary victories in South Carolina and New Hampshire are a moment of truth for the Republican establishment, who now have to decide if it’s time to rally against the mogul — possibly strengthening his contrarian appeal with voters — or find common ground and unify behind him.
“He’s got them in a real Sophie’s Choice,” said Patrick Griffin, a Republican media consultant whose clients have included the campaigns of presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.
Sophie’s Choice was literally life and death in a concentration camp.
What the GOP actually faces is a Hobson’s Choice: You can have any horse you want, as long as it’s Donald Trump.
Let’s keep them straight, yeah?
