conven tions and election campaigns we engage in a travesty on good sense Others insist with vigor that the net of it all is that we dont put our ablest men in the White House that we settle for our secondraters and demagogs Ive seen a couple examples of this at close range Vice President is chosen because he is a nobody living in the right section of the coun try Not many would make a com plete
