HWX: March Madness

It’s a very special episode of HWX, with Brian Ward of Fraters Libertas and Paul Happe of the Nihilist in Golf Pants reconvening to discuss the critical issues of our time. Topics addressed include:
* Barack Obama’s controversial NCAA women’s basketball tournament bracket picks
* A fond look back on Marco Rubio’s now suspended Presidential campaign (with help from Carly Simon)
* The Trump attack ads on Rubio and their potential effect on his future prospects in Florida (including a new attack ad debuting and targeting some of your favorite Ricochet personalities)
* The status of the Hillary campaign and some of her recent advertisements (including a first draft of a rejected ad never before heard in public)
* The #NeverTrump movement among conservatives – high principle or a temper tantrum?
* The enticing potential of an open GOP convention. If a majority of delegates can’t agree on any of the remaining candidates, who to choose? And a question for the Ricochet membership, if we could dispense with the dirty business of democratic selection, and you could choose ANYONE in the country to be the Republican nominee, who would it be?
