Mr. Bartlett is a real treasure. Why isn't a man like him at the very head of the Republican Party and the Conservative movement in general? They are willfully rejecting a man who has to be one of their best minds, and doing so merely for the sake of satisfying a few greed-maddened billionaire contributors.
A couple of things Bartlett might consider which would serve to moderate the influence of people like the Koch brothers are implementation of Federally financed elections and limits on the period of time in which those election campaigns can be conducted.
