We know (or at least think we know) that Trump is actually quite a bit more chummy with the Clinton's than he's letting on. We know for a fact that Trump isn't actually a conservative or a Republican. So, using at least some tin-foil (so maybe this should be there, dunno), is it in the realm of possibility that: 1) Trump is running to help secure the election of Hillary? 2) Trump has been promised something? So the big question, is there actually anything preventing the following: Republican Ticket - Trump/Clinton Democratic Ticket - Clinton/Trump I don't believe so. I don't believe it's illegal for a candidate to run on both tickets, although it would obviously be odd. I know for a fact that there is nothing preventing a "dual party" ticket other than an almost assured loss (see McCain talking about picking Lieberman as his first choice for a running mate). Just something that I came up with after a discussion with the wife.
