Bill Kristol: Sen. Ben Sasse Could Win Presidential Election As Third Party Candidate

Bill Kristol hits the fever swamps with another crazy idea.

Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse, who is no fan of Donald Trump, wrote on his Facebook page that voters should rally around a third party candidate in the general election.

He wrote, "Why shouldn’t America draft an honest leader who will focus on 70% solutions for the next four years? You know ... an adult?”

NRO's editor Bill Kristol, who is in support of a third party candidate, was asked
by CNN's John Berman, if Sasse's "passionate plea" is something he'd support.

Kristol responded, "I am, and I hope Ben Sasse decides to pick up the mantle himself. I think it would be fantastic to have a young, intelligent, conservative, but very independent minded - willing to work across the aisle, Senator, on the stage with two elderly Americans, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, who really are fighting the battles..."

CNN cut in to highlight about his ageist attack, so he continued, "I'm in my early sixties, they're a little older than I am.....Ben Sasse is in his forties, I think Sasse, is so much more thoughtful than either of them.

" I think someone like Sasse running would start off behind, there would be a lot of hurdles to get over, it's doable though and if he can get into the debates in September and October, I think he could actually win."

Bill Kristol, the man who helped sink Sen. John McCain's chances by suggesting and supporting Sarah Palin for his Vice President, unveils another one of his off-the-wall ideas - that are so ridiculous, not only would it never happen, but it would gift wrap the presidency to any Democratic politician, including HRC.

I hope Kristol and his #NeverTrump compatriots start a Super PAC to vet a third party candidate and to get he/she in the race.
