I originally wanted Desantis to be the nominee. I thought that his work in Florida really speaks for itself. He may be one of the best policy makers in the last decade. For some reason, he doesn’t have the same charisma on the presidential campaign trail. I know it is a sad thing to say, but you have to also be amazing in debate and sling at your opponents. That’s why Trump steamed rolled the Republicans in 2016.Thinking out loud here - Surprising to me, but at the end of the day Vivek just might be the most electable of the bunch. His foreign policy is 180 degrees incorrect, but that can be corrected and the tech-bro VC types are well known for "pivots". He has enough of the Trump narrative (without the personality defects) to endear the MAGA crowd; but also enough good domestic talking points and the "small town immigrant made good" aspect to endear the moderates (and maybe even bring along some 2nd generation immigrant liberal voters). Not to mention being an outsider from the swamp. Aside from Desantis, I can't think of another Republican candidate who really covers that much of the spectrum. If enough of the Republican party can rally behind a single candidate, recruit enough of the moderate middle-ground voters, and the DNC proffers a detestable enough candidate, there is a chance to take back the WH in 2024.
I was 8 years old in 1972. The Munich Olympics was my first memory of an Olympics. I quickly associated red with communism and we got robbed in that basketball game. Of course, the tragedy with the Israeli athletes started me down the road of paying attention to world affairs outside of athletics.You can blame it on Nancy Reagan. Red was her favorite color and she always wore the color for election and campaign events (and darn near everything else). It gradually became the republican color on all networks during election cycles of the Reagan years.
Besides, red is the classic power color. Why shouldn't it be Republican!

Yes, we all understand that elementary reading skills is a masters level class at Texas A&M and I only have my bachelors degree. However, I will managed to slog through it.
I have a hall pass for cheap shots for both UT and A&M.I wonder what college level class is taught regarding cheap shots at people not involved in a conversation. I have a pass for cheap shots for both UT and Texas A&M.
You all see Trump thinks Obama stole the election and Biden will get us into World War 2. Didn't that war end 80 years ago? Talk about too old to run for president.
