As Newt Gingrich reminded us, Senator Cruz was a "champion"(pop song broadcast earlier in the convention) orator in college. He also suggested that the senator "indirectly"(MV, Act 4, scene one) endorsed Mr. Trump. The senator told us that he could not "directly' do so because Mr. Trump had said mean things during the campaign. It is plain enough that Trump is envious regarding Senator Cruz's wife. Trump's remark's regarding Cruz's father were, it is quite clear, an indirect reference to Mick Jagger's lyric "I shouted out, who killed the Kennedy's?, when after all, it was you and me." Gov. Cristy played the role of Dogberry from MUCH ADO. The daughter who introduced Mr. Trump played Miranda from THE TEMPEST. And, in due course, Senator Cruz's talk of "conscience" was an allusion to the great monologue from MV, Act 2, scene 2.
