Unless, of course, you'd officially prefer to go back to a system where a couple Party Bosses choose the nominee with zero input from anyone else.
I thought the way it used to work was that the convention delegates ultimately chose their candidate. Lets face it, the Republican machine pretty much selects the candidate now anyway. They get Fox News to poo-poo, humiliate, and/or totally trash any real candidates (I.E., outsiders), or they find and expose things whereby to destroy them (as with Herman Cain), so in the end their chosen boys from among the "short list" are the only players left.
I was thinking that if the Republicans elected their candidate at a Convention, that would circumvent the charade of having the Democrats select the Republican nominee from among the short list that the establishment back room boys within the party have pre picked to begin with. Just trying to help you guys who are in agony out here, so next time the best NeoCon wins, and not the most ridiculous NeoCon.
