  •  We said Reagan "could" win the nomination and (7+ / 0-)

    presidency?

    The implication of what you say is that "we" said he "couldn't" but that is utterly hypothetical in that there was no DKos when Reagan was running, so who is "we"?

    It isn't  true that there was no CW that said Reagan couldn't win the presidency and certainly not the nomination. He was considered a big frontrunner for the nomination in 1980 and considered competitive for the presidency through much of Carter's term do to Carter's low approvals.
