National Review;8/20/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 31, p879
The article comments the decision of Republican presidential candidate Ronald Reagan to designate Senator Richard Schweiker (R-Penn.) as his running-mate in the November 1976 elections. It argues that Reagan's choice is a traditional one and cites several Republican tickets where liberals chose conservatives as their running mates. It also argues that the contradiction between Reagan and Schweiker reflect the diversity of the U.S. as a nation. It discusses the political advantages of Reagan's choice of Schweiker and concludes that Reagan's choice made him a stronger candidate.
