Hillsdale Man: Of Course Donald Can Beat Hillary

Never #NeverTrump: Hillsdale’s Larry Arnn


“Arnn, part of the official Churchill biographical team for years with Sir Martin Gilbert and a life long student of Lincoln, is very slow to exile anyone from the conservative movement in America if that individual hasn’t sinned against constitutional norms.

And Trump hasn’t. Yet. He may be “Jacksonian” in temperament as Walter Russell Mead has written, but he hasn’t articulated anything other than fealty to the Framers’ forms.

Many fear Trump cannot be trusted in this regard. “Power shows the man,” Arnn replies, quoting his beloved Aristotle.

Arnn is often at Hillsdale’s D.C. stronghold, its “Kirby Center” on Capitol Hill. He has many students and friends among the Capitol’s powerful. Among them are three of conservatism’s brightest stars: Sens. Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton and Mike Lee. If Arnn is not against Trump, many conservatives ask of the #NeverTrump band, why are you so adamantly so?

The answer is simply “Fear of what Trump might do with the vast powers of be White House.” To which Arnn replies that surely Hillary Clinton would put those powers at the service of an ever expanding regulatory state. A very, very strong point that.

If Trump were to name Cotton his veep, and say former Sen. Jon Kyl his secretary of defense and Joe Lieberman to State while anointing very publicly Lee or Paul Clement to be Justice Scalia’s replacement — not one of a list of 11, but THE certain nominee — Arnn would find himself surrounded by scores of similarly situated “influencers,” and Cleveland would become a genuine celebration, not a signing of an elaborate truce.

Now Arnn’s is somewhat lonely ground to occupy, but Hillsdale has often been a lonely place, especially when apparently every single one of its male students left to join Mr. Lincoln’s Army a long time ago. It’s a serious place, and it’s president is a serious man. Trump should listen to him. And the #NeverTrump forces should as well.
