RUSH: Nick, Greensboro, North Carolina, great to have you on the program, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Rush, mega dittos.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: The reason I called is I’ve heard multiple conservative commentators say that if Trump’s the nominee and if he asks Ted to be a VP that Ted shouldn’t take it just based on Ted’s own conservative principles. But I’m thinking if Trump wins and offers Ted the VP, I think Ted should employ similar logic to what of Lyndon Johnson employed in 1971, you know, about J. Edgar Hoover. And that being Ted should say to himself, it’s probably better to have me on the inside urinating out than for me to be on the outside urinating in.
RUSH: You’re speaking from Trump’s perspective?
CALLER: No, from Ted’s.
RUSH: From Cruz perspective —
CALLER: That’s what he should say to himself if he can’t beat Trump —
RUSH: Oh. Oh.
CALLER: — in the primary, what he should tell himself is the same logic as what Lyndon Johnson said.
RUSH: Well, you know what, now, since you bring up that whole thing of veep and VP, it reminds me. I was wasn’t gonna make a big deal, it’s only two people, it’s purely anecdotal, but I’ve had a couple people tell me that would be a dream ticket. A couple people who don’t want to have to make the choice of one or the other, would love one of those guys to be at the top of the ticket and the other guy to be the VP. A couple people told me that. No, not golf buddies. Just others. But maybe more. And others are obviously thinking about it, given the nature here of Nick’s call.
