Forget that this is another example of the two major parties getting all the attention. Take a look at the lower right-hand corner of the graphic that Blankenship posted today. You see that? Only TWO people that won in the caucuses have made it to the oval office. And look how popular they ended up 🙂
Okay, that’s not too fair. Popularity isn’t a rational measure of political capabilities. But really. Since this event gained widespread attention in ’72, only two winners have entered the White House as president? Puh-lease.
I’ll pay attention when something truly significant happens.
