Get It Right, Ron

May 1980
National Review;5/2/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 9, p514
The article discusses the presidential-primary general-election process in the U.S. This process not only selects a candidate and then a winner; it also educates him along the route. This hostile examination tends to create hostile metaphors for supposed vulnerabilities. To some degree, there is no way for a candidate to fight this kind of thing successfully. Presidential candidate Ronald Reagan is being sandbagged because of his inaccuracies. However, he is now in the big leagues, and therefore, he is for the first time coming under searching analysis as not even a potential but a prospective president.
