Millionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump has changed his voter registration from Republican to independent.

NBC is quoting Trump's special counsel Michael Cohen that Trump made the switch "in order to preserve his right to run as an independent" in case he is dissatisfied with the GOP nominee.

AP, via Wapo:

Special Counsel Michael Cohen said Friday that Trump could enter the race if Republicans fail to nominate a candidate who can defeat President Barack Obama.

Which pretty much guarantees that The Donald is in the race!

This is gonna be .... faaaaabulous.

Imagine a 3 way race between Obama, Romney, and Trump: 2 Republican zillionaires splitting the zillionaire vote. Then when Obama is re-elected, the GOP blames Trump, this avoiding the deep self-refection that is necessary for the party to actually get its act together.

And without such deep self-reflection, the Teahadists decide that there's nothing really wrong with their party or their message, so they don't change anything in 2016. And get creamed again.

I never thought I'd say this but ... Donald Trump, you are doing great things for the Democratic Party! Keep up the good work!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
