During the past 10 days, reports Euel Elliott in Fortune, five polls show that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are in a dead heat.
So, folks are beginning to think the unthinkable: Clinton could lose. In January 2017, it could be a President Trump. That would have ended two political dynasties - both that of Clinton and that of Bush.
Hillary, Bill, and Chelsea might be, like Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, riding into the sunset, singing "Happy Trails to you." They could take refuge in the Clinton Foundation and other types of initiatives to change the world. Their wealth would allow them to continue to have power.
But essentially it will be the end of a long era. Some of us will miss the youthful version of Hillary, the smartest girl in the class with her coke-bottle eye glasses. We recall the chubby Bill who liked his fast food too much. And the awkward First Daughter who did make it out of those teenage years. And that was then.
Now it could be The Trump Show in D.C.
