Morris says being a front runner for the duration of a campaign is a prerequisite for winning the nomination. In the last fifty years only Barry Goldwater managed to topple a front runner Nelson Rockefeller to win his party’s nomination. As I recall what did Rocky in was his dumping his wife for his mistress. Perhaps that was the first indication ofÂ theÂ emphasis onÂ moral values which now dominates the GOP.
Although we are ten months away from the one year countdown to the 2008 campaignÂ Morris says Hillary has aÂ commanding lead among Democrats and Rudy is the top contender among Republicans.
