Also, Mr. Hartmann has quoted this several time throughout today’s broadcast. It bears repeating here and is outlandishly topical:
The people donâ€™t want a phony Democrat. If it’s a choice between a genuine Republican and a Republican in Democratic clothing, the people will choose the genuine article every time; that is, they will take a Republican before they will a phony Democrat, and I donâ€™t want any phony Democratic candidates in this campaign.
â€” President Harry Truman
