In order to take part in the GOP presidential debate this week, candidates are required to sign a loyalty pledge that they will support whoever is the eventual Republican nominee. Trump, who will not be on the debate stage, has not signed the pledge.

Even if Trump does the pledge, who believes he would abide by it, if he isn’t the nominee? His motivation is do what is in the interest of Donald Trump. Doing what is good for America or the Republican Party are the last among Trump’s last concerns.

If Trump’s trials reveal beyond a doubt that he is guilty of the crimes for which he is charged, thus unworthy of being a Republican presidential nominee, why should any of his primary rivals be obliged to support him?

To be a Republican candidate you need to be dishonest or a hypocrite…ideally both.

    This isn't a new thing. Both parties have done this a lot in the past, so to bring it up now is hypocritical at best.

    I will say though, that's some of the better news coming out this week. That is showing trumpster's true colors to the world. I expect a drop off after the debates, and my bet is that several folks will talk about the cowardliness of "he who shall not be named." And all I can do is hope.

    My other thought is that the RNC may withhold money if he's the winner of the primaries. That's the main reason both parties do this. It's a contract. You support, we'll give you money to run. I'm sure trumpster thinks he doesn't need the money, but especially in swing states, he needs the coverage.

    The DNC has never made signing a loyalty pledge to support whoever is the GOP nominee a requirement to participate in the debates.

    I don't believe Republicans have done it before either. They are only doing it now is because one of their candidates is under indictment on 91 charges. Some of the other candidates might actually believe in law and order. Thus they would have reservations about supporting a possibly convicted criminal who doesn't care about traditional Republican values or any other sort of values.

    The DNC did it just to run and get DNC money.

    Bernie Sanders Signs Democratic Party Loyalty Pledge For 2020 Run

    Vermont independent Sen. Bernie Sanders has signed a loyalty pledge, promising to run and govern as a Democrat if he wins the presidency in 2020, a new requirement for candidates that largely grew out of his own 2016 campaign.

    The pledge Sanders signed was given to all active Democratic presidential campaigns last week. It affirms to the DNC chairman that they "are a Democrat ... are a member of the Democratic Party; will accept the Democratic nomination; and will run and serve as a member of the Democratic Party."

    It's an issue that arose during Sanders' first presidential run, with concerns among some Democrats that the longtime independent and self-described democratic socialist, might run as a third-party candidate after losing the nomination to Hillary Clinton.

    As I said and you illustrated, there wasn't a DNC pledge to support the nominee to appear on the debate stage.

    Sanders is not even a member of the Democratic Party. So the DNC was more than accommodating to even permit him to run under the DNC banner. They had to get him to commit to not govern as a Socialist.

    Incidentally, I WANT so see to vibrant Republican party that has core beliefs, principles and values. I don't have agree with all their positions to respect candidates like Asa Hutchison or Will Hurds. I believe both of those guys are patriotic Americans who have the nation's best interests at heart.

    It is healthy to have two political parties with varied and sometimes opposing opinions. Laws are generally better when both sides have input.

    And it was even Bernie's idea to sign such a pledge. No one was making him do it.

    curt- nooooo, the wanted it just to run. Which is the precursor to debating.
