What's so wrong with a brokered convention?

 | 

In the summer of 1956, as a 6th grader, I watched the Democratic National Convention with amazement as a young Irish Catholic senator from Massachusetts, John F. Kennedy, came within 38 ½ votes of the Democratic nomination for vice president of the United States. I also watched as he lost that nomination to Sen. Estes Kefauver of Tennessee on the next ballot.

Republicans have themselves to blame for Donald Trump

 | 

The so-called Republican establishment created Donald Trump.

These Republicans, such as Mitt Romney, are now launching attacks on Trump as they fear that he will win enough delegates to become the presidential nominee. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz in the recent debates have finally begun to criticize Trump for his bad-boy behavior and his outrageous verbal assaults on them and other candidates. The mainstream media in turn seems to suggest that more moderate conservatives (whatever that means) are panicked about Trump. 

But is this is all wrong.
