It is sad to see that someone who stood for the principles of the Republican party could be displaced by a bunch of RINOs and a Mormon. This only goes to show that the electorate, in this case the Republican electorate, cannot recognize a good candidate even if it hits them in the face.
I do hope whoever the Republican candidate ends up being, would consider Fred for the VP position; although in reality, I'd really love to see a bipartisan ticket. Wouldn't that be a true sign of a candidate wanting to mend fences and unite the nation. I won't hold my breath.
