49. Thank you!

 

I'm thinking of using the general topic for an OP.

The '72 campaign & election was important, and we should all learn from it. My impression is that those who didn't live through it are probably sadly aware of the actual dynamics. Most of what is said about it today is rooted in emotional response, not a rational examination. Even people I consider intelligent have frequently forgotten the role that CREEP played, and remember "Watergate" as one mere break-in, rather than a long, on-going series of closely related crimes. And that's a shame.

However, if they want to remember '72 in shorthand, the fact is that a heck of a lot of moderate-to-conservative Democrats voted for Richard Nixon, rather than our party's nominee.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Undecided
