George Will: The One Thing We Would Know About Donald Trump's Running Mate

On April 29, 2016 conservative Republican pundit George Will wrote a very interesting, and I think important, opinion article in the Washington Post that I hope you read, "If Trump is nominated, the GOP must keep him out of the White House"

George Will gives truth about whoever would accept to be Donald Trump's running mate
A key secondary theme of the article, that I think is as important as the dominant theme posed by the title, is that Donald Trump must not be the Republican nominee to do even further damage to what he already has to the party and the conservative movement. 

In this article, one of the brilliant points he made was on Donald Trump's VP choice if he, God forbid, wins the nomination:

"Ted Cruz announcement of his preferred running mate has enhanced the nomination process by giving voters pertinent information. They already know the only important thing about Trump’s choice: His running mate will be unqualified for high office because he or she will think Trump is qualified."

Now I might have used the word unfit instead of unqualified, but this was pure brilliance by George Will.  We will know that Donald Trump's choice for Vice President will not be a good one [if that person accepts] because that person will not have shown the judgement to turn down Trump's offer.
