Some Trump-style speculation on the GOP and Putin

CLEVELAND -- It was a grand old party at Quicken Loans Arena on Thursday night. Delegates wore cowboy hats, straw hats, tricorn hats, stovepipe hats, cheesehead hats, evergreen hats and Uncle Sam hats. They bopped to the music of a seven-piece band and waved red, white and blue...
