1. Nothing new in not punishing these guys.
No speaker in the '60's or '70s ever followed the party rule that Democratic committee chairs that don't support the presidential ticket must be stripped of their chairmanships. Almost ALL Southern Dem chairs in '64, '68 and '72(to say nothing of '80, '84 and '88)refused to endorse or campaign for the ticket, backing Wallace, Nixon or Reagan instead. By contrast, no progressive committee chair was ever disloyal to the presidential ticket.
