In reply to: I don't remember 's message, "When George Wallace was running for President again & again, was there a lot of handwringing about how his candidacy was damaging the "Brand" of the Democratic party?" on Sun November 29, 2015 14:52:29

Wallace's main goal was to throw the election into the House of Representatives and demand that the ultimate winner agree to civil rights concessions. Similar to how Rutherford Hayes sold out blacks to "win" the 1876 election--even though Samuel Tilden won the popular vote.
