Change Hillary to Donald Trump and the pronouns accordingly, and you have a New York Times headline.
From the New York Times:
Would Donald Trump Quit if He Wins the Election? He Doesn’t Rule It Out
The traditional goal of a presidential nominee is to win the presidency and then serve as president.
Donald J. Trump is not a traditional candidate for president.
Presented in a recent interview with a scenario, floating around the political ether, in which the presumptive Republican nominee proves all the naysayers wrong, beats Hillary Clinton and wins the presidency, only to forgo the office as the ultimate walk-off winner, Mr. Trump flashed a mischievous smile.
“I’ll let you know how I feel about it after it happens,” he said, minutes before leaving his Trump Tower office to fly to a campaign rally in New Hampshire.Weird.
But then there is the next sentence: "It is, of course, entirely possible that Mr. Trump is playing coy to earn more news coverage."
The news media in general and the New York Times in particular are in the midst of a nervous breakdown. Trump's rise and Brexit have shown the impotence of the modern Goliaths who protect the modern Philistines in DC. The desperation for relevance is intriguing to say the least.
