How will Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign be remembered? Predicting history is a fool’s errand but it seems like a safe bet that Cruz will go down as the Republican candidate so openly distasteful that he made Donald Trump seem palatable.

But we will remember Cruz as the candidate who was most thoroughly embarrassed on the campaign trail. Cruz was owned by his fellow candidates, by his running mate, by random faces in the crowd, by his own children and, perhaps most frequently, by himself.

We thank him for his contributions to the democratic process, and he will be missed.
