Felt Bush had much more over Dukakis when it came to national security and foreign policy. Had no trouble with "Read my lips! No, new taxes!" Nor, did I have a problem with him in raising taxes, because he placed the good of the country over ideology. I'm with you regarding Clinton and Bob and Elizabeth Dole, though I doubt either of the latter two could get the nomination today. I would have voted for Colin Powell and Chuck Haggar if they'd ran. Like I mentioned else where, career service people lead colorful lives, which are difficult to pass the vetting process.
