    outside of Nevada. He was talking to the Nevada press days before the Nevada primary. He thought he could slip it in relatively undetected by the outside, but he was wrong. Hence the gaffe. It's a good strategy for Nevada, I admit. Praise the mother of all Republicans, St. Ronnie, then appeal to them to vote for you in the primary. Then you don't actually need as many Dem votes, and you don't have to court non-moderates. You also get to preserve your image for this strategy in the GE, even if it does get out, so there's a built-in safety. Since he's in no way courting the progressive vote (he considers it bagged), he really had nothing to lose.
