Neal Boortz on 'Herman Cain Show' Makes the Best #NeverTrump Case Yet

Alexander Hamilton

One of the arguments that Trump fans make to try to shame principled conservatives into voting for their guy is the assertion that if we don't vote for Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton will win the presidency. The Trump crowd ignores the overwhelming evidence that The Donald will likely not win a head-to-head matchup with Clinton.

On Monday, the legendary Neal Boortz (also known as "the Talkmaster") subbed for Herman Cain on Cain's syndicated radio show, based out of WSB in Atlanta. Cain often comes across as a Trump cheerleader, but Boortz is firmly in the #NeverTrump camp.

The Talkmaster invoked what he calls "Hamilton's Rule" to make a compelling case against Trump. This axiom stems from a quote from Alexander Hamilton from the run-up to the 1800 election between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Hamilton said:

If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.

The context is this: uber-Federalist Hamilton decided he would rather see his enemy Jefferson win the presidency in 1800 over nominal Federalist (FINO?) Adams. Hamilton knew that Federalists could make a better case for the future by railing against Jefferson than by having to explain away a second Adams term.

Boortz has mentioned "Hamilton's Rule" many times before, and he's not the only one on the Right doing so, either. But on Monday, he made his point loud and clear over the airwaves in reply to a caller who said that "we have one choice in November - Donald Trump":
