I'm planning to run as Establishment Phil:

Experience, knowledge, and blue eyes to kill.

Mexicans endorse me, my back slapped by Teamsters,

My campaign planned out by silver-tied schemesters.

But now my aides tell me the E-word is out,

So is Wash-town, power, and Congress-hall clout.


"What's this?" I say. "I can make this place work,

"Have House and the Senate going berserk!

"I'll pass more laws than that slick LBJ!

"I'll whup the Chinese, have Vlad for entree!

"I know every leader and key bureaucrat.

"Go ask The Donald if he can say that!"
