The Reagan factor

Now that I’ve all but convinced you of the validity of an Obama nomination, let’s discuss a prospective running mate. I think I’ve come up with an idea that would almost certainly capture the left-leaning-independent and ill-informed-and-utterly-confused conservative votes. I propose the selection of a prominent liberal with dynamite crossover appeal — Ron Reagan.

Imagine the campaign ads in, say, an Obama-Giuliani race. “What ticket would you rather vote for? One that includes a man who was merely influenced by the father of modern American conservatism or a man who was fathered by the father of modern American conservatism?”
