Trump survives despite what he says
4) March 22: Threatens to “spill the beans” on Ted Cruz’s wife
We can still recall when even the smallest mistake -- real or perceived -- could send a presidential candidate packing.
Michael Dukakis in a tank -- classic.
Walter Mondale's promise to raise taxes -- yeah, that worked well.
President Ford saying there was no Soviet domination in Eastern Europe -- someone forgot to tell the Eastern Europeans.
Senator Ed Muskie's tears (or is that melted snow?) -- didn't matter, he was done.
You get the idea.
Donald Trump may or may not be the Republican nominee (voters will decide that). But one thing is sure about his campaign so far: he's been able to survive, and thrive, despite saying things that once would have sent him home for good.
