Now, don't get me wrong. I wouldn't vote for Evan McMullin. I'd vote for Jill Stein, if I absolutely had to vote at all.
But McMullin is just your common or garden wrong Republican. He is neither Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump.
I realise that this is clutching at the straws of straws, but his victory in Utah could deadlock the Electoral College, sending the whole thing to his old friends and associates in the House.
I know, I know. But do you have a better cause for hope?
