    How could you forget Alan Keyes from 2000? He was clearly the smartest of the bunch.

    I liked him a lot. I just liked him more as a radio commentator.

    Absolutely.

    Hmmm... Not to nitpick, but do you really think he was defeated because the Republicans didn't/don't value diversity?

    In any case, thanks for reminding me of Keyes. Non-white-male Republicans don't get enough attention by "either" side.

    I think racism was an element, but you’re right it was mainly because GWB was a safe pick. However, that didn’t stop the dems from choosing Obama over Clinton, the other “safe” candidate. Credit the dems in that case for taking a gamble on the least likely candidate who clearly had more character than Billary.

    I think we’re confusing 2016 with 2000. Keyes ran in 2000.

    Actually, wasn't it 1996, 2000, and 2008?
