Check out this @cnn exchange I had w/ @realDonaldTrump in 2007 on the Iraq War https://t.co/hTnPPR30qN

Early on I wondered if Trump was pulling a Ross Perot. Ross ran to defeat Bush, period. Every time it looked like Perot was starting to get slightly ahead in the polls, he would say something bizarre, and his numbers would drop. What if Trump took that same deal? Win the Republican primary, or at least weaken the other contenders, and then lose the general election? I stopped believing this as The Donald was doing so well in the primaries. Now, I'm starting to revisit the theory. This is a Clinton sized stunt to pull. Do you put it past them? Still uncertain, but completely plausible.
