We had 16 known candidates. only 3 of them were lifelong Conservative Republicans. All the rest of them had some affiliation with another political party, or two!

There was no need for a circular firing squad if we'd had standards in place to keep the top of the ticket nomination in the hands of lifelong Republicans!

Such standards would mean no GOP nomination for Ronald Reagan...

good point, although I wouldn’t want to impose a “life-long” test (which would have barred, say, Ronald Reagan for sure!)

but yes, it was frustrating to see some pretty good candidates ripping each other to shreds... all HusseinO had to do was sit back and watch (and laugh)...
