    My folks were Robert Taft Republicans. They opposed the nomination of Ike in '52 but when he won the nomination, they supported him. When Taft passed away, they said that it was God's will that he was not nominated (because he was went home shortly after Ike was elected). The Taft wing was more conservative than Ike. One of my uncles worked in the campaign for Wendell Willkie in 1940. Everyone in my family disliked FDR and this generation still dislikes him for many reasons.

    I don't believe the leaders of the republican party are conservative, so it has been years since they have had a conservative run for president. What does that tell us? The GOP members aren't conservative. The GOP went for Ike over Taff and Ike was anything but a conservative. The liberal and moderate part of the party put him in. The GOP is moving more and more to the Rockefeller type.
