Nikki Haley's theory of the case when if she runs for president in 2024 is pretty simple: I'm the parts of Donald Trump you liked without any of the parts you didn't like!

(CNN)Nikki Haley's theory of the case when if she runs for president in 2024 is pretty simple: I'm the parts of Donald Trump you liked without any of the parts you didn't like!

She literally said just that -- in an interview with Politico's Tim Alberta recently.

Except there is a 0% chance that Trump -- or the base that he commands -- is going to go along with that plan.

Witness this reporting from Politico Thursday afternoon: 

"Nikki Haley reached out to former President Donald Trump on Wednesday to request a sit-down at Mar-a-Lago, but a source familiar tells Playbook that he turned her down.

The two haven't spoken since the insurrection on Jan. 6, when Haley blasted Trump for inciting his supporters to storm the Capitol. "

See, there is no halfway with Trump.

So Haley's strategy might make sense to her (or on paper) but in the real world she's going to have make a choice: Are you with Trump or not?

The Point: Whether Trump himself runs again in 2024, the fundamental question that every candidate who runs will have to answer is whether they will run with Trump or away from him.
