It's been amusing in recent weeks to watch Washington pundits grappling with Trumpmania and the surge of Bernie Sanders. To say that the rise of these unusual candidates has been unsettling for the political elites would be a gross understatement. Still, while the process is causing them some angst, most insiders still expect the final contenders to be Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush.
