The nominees have been decided, and the election is set for November.
Donald Trump will face Hillary Clinton in the presidential election this fall, and it is guaranteed to be one of the most unusual elections ever.
While Hillary Clinton is an establishment political figure who has been in the national spotlight for well over 20 years, the same cannot be said of Mr. Trump.
Of course, he is a well known television fixture who has been famous for many decades.
But he is a political newbie.
In the past, he has toyed with the idea of running for president before deciding against it.
Back then, he would have run as a third-party candidate, and his views were much different from what they are today.
He was more of a moderate when he considered a presidential bid in the year 2000, but times have drastically changed his views.
It is difficult to draw any parallels of previous national party presidential nominees.
Ronald Reagan was also an entertainer, but by 1980, he had made a successful transition from actor to California governor.
Say what you will about his policies, but it was clear that his political success was built on his political brand, not whatever success he had as an actor.
Donald Trump is in a league of his own, and he probably wants it that way.
He plays by his own rules.
I, for one, am excited to see how this election plays out.
There is some chatter that the GOP may change its rules at the last minute to deny Trump the nomination, but that might even be more risky than simply letting Trump become the nominee.
After all, how would Trump’s loyal supporters react to such a tactic?
All I know is, we’re in for one heck of a show!
