It would seem just as likely that the moderate wing of the party seeks perfection, as evidenced by their jettisoning of conservative candidates who express points of view offensive to them.
My whole point is that there are NO perfect candidates. My point is that there are people we have supported and liked all through the years - until they voice a differing opinion on a single topic.
Your second paragraph expresses the exact thing I am saying and is the example of what is voiced here on the forum all the time by ‘we conservatives’! They threw each candidate under the bus until Romney was selected for us.
It’s like the old story of a woman shopping for a man in a many level department store, and she keeps saying ‘no’ at each level until she reaches the top floor and they say “there are no men here”. No perfect people.....
