  •  Beware of that theory. (3+ / 0-)

    I remember thinking something similar about Reagan.  It didn't work out so well...

    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    •  I actually had a textbook in college (2+ / 0-)

      Which talked about Reagan as a failed candidate, and said something like "The Republicans need a man on horseback - a George Wallace with broader appeal, or a Ronald Reagan with greater depth".

      The book was published in the early 1970's. I took the class in 1979. I still remember going to a night class in 1980 and someone came in late and said the networks had called it for Reagan and 100 people at once sighed or moaned. No real outcry; we'd all seen it coming.

      Smiting trolls on the tubes since 1977!
