Donald Trump agrees to debate Bernie Sanders in California Update: Trump backs out. Sad.

Hillary Clinton backed out of an agreement to debate Bernie Sanders in California. Bernie posed the challenge to Trump and he accepted (provided money goes to charity).

Obviously there is always risk, a bad debate night can hurt you.  Still, this is potentially a game changer, for Bernie.  I assume both Trump and Sanders could hold their own against each other, but there would be a lot of interest (and high ratings) with such a debate.

Who would be the big loser? Baring a complete melt down by Sanders (which I think it unlikely), Hillary Clinton would be hurt if this proposed event went forward.  Especially with the increased focus on her legal problems and corruption.

Trump says his past pro Clinton comments were insincere (Jimmy Kimmel responds back with a different, more salty way of describing Trump's past comments and actions).

  1. Debating Sanders is a high risk-reward situation for Trump. If he somehow elevates Sanders to the point where Hillary is knocked out (and the possibility, however slim, still exists), he will find a more formidable opponent who does not have Hillary's vote ceiling. The reward though is that he gets a Democrat to help him run down Hillary before Trump and Hillary even formally begin sparring.

    This is why Trump is winning (despite my vote for Cruz); he is willing to take risks and eschew safe lay-ups for bigger rewards.
