Which is why Walinsky will vote for Trump.
Walinsky is very serious. On the twentieth anniversary of the assassination of Kennedy, Walinsky wrote:
Robert Kennedy reminds us that the essential characteristic of political leadership is not talk, however fine, but action. Whether it was a national assault on organized crime or inventing and effecting a plan to redevelop ghetto neighborhoods, Robert Kennedy would do it.
In all the years I knew him, I never heard Robert Kennedy say, ''If only President Kennedy had lived, things would be different now.'' That to him would have been weakness. He would speak about uncomfortable subjects repeatedly, telling suburbanites what it was like for a child to grow up with rats in the bedroom; he never gave up. ''All this is our responsibility,'' he said, ''not just a nation's responsibility but yours and mine.''
Perhaps our search for Robert Kennedy means that we are preparing to again measure our leaders, and ourselves, by such a strong and solemn test. That would be a fit observance of the most responsible American political figure of our lifetime.
This year -- nearly a half-century after that awful night in Los Angeles -- Walinsky will vote for Trump, and not just because Trump is the first candidate since Kennedy to make black ghettos a major issue.
Trump is the peace candidate.
Well may we seek reassurance whether Mr. Trump has the kind of cool judgment and self-possession that the presidency requires; the judgment that comes to the fore in crisis, that saves a nation or perhaps a world. No one can ever truly know how a future president will react to such enormous pressures. But Trump has given some evidence. He set himself a unique course toward the office, disdaining conventional wisdom, speaking more truth about politics and about America than any conventional consultant or adviser thought prudent or wise. And yet it is his independence, his willingness to name facts however unpleasant, together with his great political courage, that can give us hope and even some confidence that he may be up to the job. Perhaps most important, he has proven that he is not intimidated by the generals and admirals who have up to this day had their unimpeded way with our wars and our budgets, to the immense loss of both.
Flawed as he may be, Trump is telling more of the truth than politician of our day. Most important, he offers a path away from constant war, a path of businesslike accommodation with all reasonable people and nations, concentrating our forces and efforts against the true enemies of civilization. Thus, to dwell on his faults and errors is to evade the great questions of war and peace, life and death for our people and our country. You and I will have to compensate for his deficits of civility, in return for peace, we may hope as Lincoln hoped, among ourselves and with all nations.
Truly, America first, last and always; for ourselves and for our posterity. These are the reasons why I will vote for Donald Trump for president.
Walinsky sees as I see (and it is a great piece really worth reading) Trump changing the Republican Party, reining it in. Democrats are next. Then Washington.
My new book, "Trump the Press," is a fun read that details how the experts missed the rise of Trump. Remember how they said Trump was just running to help Hillary? Read the reviews in the right column.
