Trump's next move? Do all he can to pitt the other candidates against each other and against Ted Cruz. If he can to feed the animosity between them, making sure they stay in their current places, they won't unite and come together.
But, if the candidates do unite behind Ted Cruz --- because he's the only one with the numbers to beat Donald Trump --- there is a pathway to victory.
Glenn outlined his dream team to accomplish just that.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:
GLENN: So let me give you a couple of things. I'll tell you what I think should happen. But let me give you a couple of observations from last night. I wrote about last night, about 9 o'clock, that the next move for Trump is do all he can through people like Roger Stone to put all other candidates against Ted Cruz.
He has to keep them apart. So what I mean is to do everything he can to feed animosity between the other candidates to make sure they stay in the places that they are, that they don't start gathering together. Look for those dirty tricks that will divide -- divide each other even more than they already are divided.
But then there's something else that you should watch for with Donald Trump. And he was already doing it. The G.O.P. is at the -- is at the point of death. And their decision is this: Get behind your base of conservatives and deep conservatives that currently support Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio or stand with Donald Trump because he will make deals and move to the progressive middle to get Democrats to vote for him.
I believe that this is what you're going to see Donald Trump do. And this is exactly what he did last night at the -- when he was speaking.
He will begin to move to the left because that's who he really is. He's much more Chris Christie than anything else. And he is a progressive liberal from New York. And so he's going to move now to the left. And he's just going to say, "Look, I'm just trying to reach out because we're going to make this tent bigger. We're going to make this tent uge."
And the -- the G.O.P. has to decide: Do you want to have a uge tent that doesn't include the conservatives, but does include all of the progressive Chuck Schumers and the liberals who are disenfranchised with Hillary Clinton? Are you going to become the Democratic Party?
He will tell the party leaders that he's going to grow the party and they shouldn't worry about the loss of the conservative base, quote, because they're not going to go anywhere. The G.O.P. has never liked the conservatives in the first place, neither has Donald Trump.
Donald Trump has said how stupid those people are in the past. His policies are not small government in the past or currently. He's more progressive than Boehner, John McCain, or McConnell. The G.O.P. will choose to throw in with Trump over Cruz and the conservatives. And I believe it will be the end of the Grand Old Party because they forgot who took them there, what their principles were in the first place, and conservatives are tired of being treated like a redheaded stepchild. And they will not go for it anymore.
So what do we do? Where are we now? What should happen to -- to us? What should Ted Cruz do at this point?
I think it's really quite easy to see a path to real victory here. And that -- that path starts today, really, if Ted Cruz is open to offering some positions.
I think if Ted Cruz came out and said to Marco Rubio -- and I don't think Marco Rubio would take this. But I think if he came out and said, "Marco, we have got to work together. And I know that we have differences, but neither of us are going to win if we keep this going on. You don't have a path to victory." And Rubio will get insulted and argue back and forth. Because I saw him on television, argue back and forth. That's because the government progressives have gotten into his head.
But you don't have a way -- you don't have a way to win. You need to join me. And together we can win. And I'll make you the vice president. Because you're young. What are you, 12? You're young. You'll be able to run --
PAT: You're about the same page.
GLENN: No, he seems he's like 12, doesn't he?
PAT: Yeah. He does.
GLENN: You're going to be able to run for president. You'll be vice president. And then you can run for president after that.
GLENN: But we have to save the republic.
GLENN: So you run as vice president. Ben Carson, you're going to be the attorney general if you'll take it. Let's make Rand Paul the secretary of -- of -- of treasury. Let's start to put together a dream team here, and let's march together.
Now, I don't think that's going to happen because there are too many people in Washington that want to keep their position.
As I was driving into the studios here that we have, you know, right by Union Station here in Washington, DC, we're a block away from the capitol, TheBlaze facilities. And I'm looking at all these buildings, and they're all unions. You know, the Association of Realtors. And all these lobbyists. There's too much money here to be made. There's too much power. Too many buildings that have been built for this stuff for those guys to let go of their power easily.
And so they don't want somebody like Ted Cruz. Because Ted Cruz is going to say, "Get out. Get out." All of this is unconstitutional, get out. Let's listen to the people.
But I would pray for a miracle. Because here's why this has to be done now. Stu, correct me if I'm wrong. But I believe Florida and Ohio are winner-take-all states, are they not?
STU: Yeah, they are.
GLENN: So we don't have the time to prove Marco Rubio wrong. He is 20 points behind in Florida. If he would join Ted Cruz, they would win Florida. If they don't join, they will both lose Florida and it's a winner-take-all state, and you're going to have Donald Trump as your nominee. And there won't be any way to go. It will be too late.
The people who say Donald Trump should not be president need to come together. And I said this yesterday to Ted Cruz.
Ted, if you don't walk away with the lion's share of the delegates in second place tomorrow. If it's Marco Rubio, I'm going to come to you and tell you, "You got to get behind the other guy." Whoever has the lion's share of the delegates, we've got to pull together. Because Donald Trump is the end of the G.O.P. And I'm fine with that, quite honestly. But what are you going to replace it with? He is the end of the G.O.P. And he is the end, I believe, of the republic as we know it.
So where do we go from here? Unity is where we go. Unity. And there's a lot of people that are part of the -- the Trump coalition that don't want to be part of the Trump coalition. There will always be -- those people who are just mad and nasty, those people, they're always going to be with Donald Trump. But there's a lot of people who are reasonable and don't like standing next to people who are mean and nasty. Those people, let's show them that we can work together and build a better place and a better country and be good and decent and honorable.
Here's my dream team -- and I think this is doable. I think this is doable and absolutely unstoppable.
Ted Cruz as the president. Marco Rubio -- and I think they should announce this and run as this. I think we should begin to demand this. I think this should go all over the internet.
Ted Cruz as president. Marco Rubio as vice president. Remember, Marco Rubio -- the reason why he's still in it and he's not going to give up is because he can't run for his Senate seat. So his Senate seat is over. So he's out. So he's going to keep going. He has an interest. So Ted Cruz as president. Marco Rubio as vice president. They then say, "Our Supreme Court nominee is Mike Lee. Rand Paul is going to be the Secretary of Treasury. And Ben Carson, we're going to back you with everything we can to get you to take Marco Rubio's seat in the Senate."
How is that not a win for absolutely everyone? And that team would be unstoppable. Tweet that. Facebook that. Get that out. Demand that that's where we go.
Everyone wins: Cruz is president. Rubio, vice president. Mike Lee as our Supreme Court justice. Rand Paul as Treasury Secretary. And Ben Carson as the new Florida senator. Everyone wins. And we'll stomp in November.
