Will GOP officials change "Rule 40" to stop Trump at the GOP Convention in Cleveland? If they do, would such a desperate measure be the "End of the World As We Know It" for the GOP? Newt Gingrich says it would cause a "civil war." Limbaugh says it would create "chaos" -- but that it might happen anyways. Establishment hopes, such as they are, seem to be tied to potential rule changes and maneuverings into an "open convention." Will they work? Meanwhile, are GOP figures suddenly signaling they are poised to rally around Ted Cruz? As "Marcomentum" stalls, is Cruz becoming the new preferred Establishment candidate? We consider the evolving pro-Cruz viewpoints of David Brooks, Mitt Romney and Lindsey Graham as we offer our own reservations about Cruz. Also, notes on the retirement of Peyton Manning and a family ski update from Breckenridge. With music and listener calls.
