Mr. Trump's strength, like Spiro T. Agnew's half a century ago, will never be his policy knowledge or his ability to work the bureaucracy, but rather as a powerful political symbol that can speak directly to those who have been dismissed as unimportant and unfit by, as Agnew famously said, an "effete corps of impudent snobs."

On April 26, Maryland will hold its primary election. Both Democrats and Republicans have a stake in this primary, but in different races. In the race for president on the Democratic ballot either candidate is acceptable. I prefer Sen. Bernie Sanders because he has less baggage to weigh him down in the general election.
Name a newly elected Republican Governor of Maryland with little previous political experience that hailed from the suburbs and had to deal with racial unrest and rioting in the city during his first term? Maryland's current Governor Larry Hogan? Guess again. How about future Vice President Spiro Agnew.
