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)...

Used to be a time Rinos were useful, particularly in the South. That way we had caucus partners, and with enough of them we might edge out the Democrat control of legislative houses, or city councils.

That worked for a time, then the dykes broke!

Instead of “lifelong republican” we should have made the standard, “could not have left the GOP because it was to conservative”, that would have excluded Mitt Romney, who left the GOP and did not rejoin until after the Reagan Revolution and his veep’s presidency was over.
