Jennifer, I agree with every word in your post. I just add that at one point in the not-too-distant past, that Uncommitted guy often was very strong all across the country. Indeed, at the first caucus I ever attended, back when I was 12 years old in 1976, Uncommitted sent an entire slate of 15 delegates from our congressional district caucus to the Louisiana state convention, at which convention Ronald Reagan won most of the delegates but Uncommitted did manage to elect several delegates to go to the national convention in Kansas City. At that convention, they joined a significant number of delegates pledged to Uncommitted from across the country. The shame of it was that almost all of Uncommitted’s delegates turned out to be double-crossers eager to leave Uncommitted behind in favor or President Ford. Result: Ford defeated Reagan narrowly, and then went on to proclaim that Eastern Europe was free of Soviet domination and thus hand the White House to Jimmy Carter. Further result: I have looked with strong suspicion at Mr. Uncommitted and all of his supporters ever since. 🙂
