I prefer the convention method. It allows the activists in the party to choose the nominee. They are the ones who will be doing most of the gruntwork in the campaign. And primaries are more expensive and drain candidates' resources prior to the general election.
In VA we have open primaries and no registration by party. Anyone can vote to choose the GOP nominee. I prefer Reps to choose our nominee.

We will have to agree to disagree on this subject.

(gun control: deep breath, sight alignment, squeeze the trigger .......)
With open primaries and no party registration available the convention is THE ONLY DEMOCRATIC WAY to select a candidate. Otherwise we’d just be handing over the choice to the anti-semitic and fasicstic Democrats in Alexandria and Arlington to do the job ~ and that jus’ ain’t right!
