Remember the last time a divided political party thought it would be a good idea to rally behind a guy with with experience as Massachusetts governor, and made him their nominee for President?
It didn't take long for Democrats to realize they'd made a mistake. But too late. They were locked into their nominee.
Right now, it appears many Republicans are leaning in a direction of doing to their party what the Democrats did to theirs in '88.
