Donald Trump would have reminded Hamilton of Aaron Burr, his political nemesis and the man who would ultimately kill Hamilton in a duel. Like Trump, Burr had an outsized, narcissistic personality. Fidelity to principle never stood in the way of Burrs self-advancement. His defining moment came in the presidential election of 1800, when he reneged on a promise to serve as Thomas Jeffersons vice president and tried to seize the presidency for himself.
Yet that is just what Hamilton did: He supported Jefferson over Burr. Writing to Harrison Otis, leader of the Massachusetts House delegation, Hamilton noted that Mr. Jefferson, though too revolutionary in his notions, is yet a lover of liberty and will be desirous of something like orderly governmentMr. Burr loves nothing but himself Hamilton concluded that any deal the Federalists tried to strike with Burr would never bind Burr, who thinks of nothing but his own aggrandizement, and whose controlling passion is ambition. With remarkable foresight, Hamilton saw that a Democratic-Republican administration under Jefferson would allow the Federalists to remain a principled party of opposition, ready to return to power when the Democratic Republicans faltered. If the Federalists supported Burr, however, they adopt him and become answerable for him.
Republicans who vote for Trump face the same dilemma. If elected, Republicans would be blamed for his failures. To support Trump, we must sacrifice our principles and reconcile our minds to his. Better we should follow Hamiltons example and support an opposing party whose principles we rejectand remain a principles party of opposition.
