If there were no cable TV anymore? That would be a very interesting situation. My husband isn’t interested in sports, but many would be seriously affected.
Since 1900, only one Republican became president by defeating an incumbent. That was Ronald Reagan. He had these four traits that might have helped him:
1. He was conservative.
2. He was a governor.
3. He sought the nomination, in a previous election.
4. He was from the West.
These Republicans, who might run, have at least three of those four traits: Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, and Dirk Kempthorne. I hope that all four of them will run, and I hope that Haley Barbour, Gary Johnson, and Buddy Roemer will also run. I hope that at least four of those seven will continue campaigning until the convention. If that happens, no one will get a majority of delegates, before the convention, causing the convention to be more suspenseful and exciting, causing more people to watch and hear the republican ideas. That happened in 1980, and Reagan won about 40 states.
I was still a "YUTE" then, but I seem to remember in 1980 that George HW Bush was electable and Ronald Reagan was not. The Rockefeller/elitist loved Bush's "Voodoo Economics" line.
