My sense of the situation is that DeSantis must have been misled by his advisors — a
common political failing — who convinced him that his moment had come, that greatness had been thrust upon him. Patience may not always be a virtue, but it is often necessary in the daily practice of life, in politics, and in presidential runs. Substituting the wish for the reality, the program for the policy, can obviously lead to unhappy consequences. America is visibly teetering on the precipice. It is Trump’s nomination to win.
