I am adamant in my belief that in the more profound sense, for now and the future, he
came in second—easily. Why? Primarily, because he dropped out. Secondly, he immediately backed Trump and offered to help with his campaign. If Mr. Ramaswamy is offered a position in the cabinet of President Trump and accepts it (as I urged him to do in the hubbub of Monday night), he may find himself in the very short time of four years to be the odds-on inheritor of the MAGA movement. And if we are all lucky, that will be a wonderful thing to inherit.
