History "Looks" like it Matters when Selecting our Presidential Nominee

Let history be your guide when nominating a candidate for President.
1. Executive Branch experience trumps Legislative Branch experience for Successful Presidential Candidates.
2. The most attractive candidate always wins which is why in close races both candidates are generally considered to be equally appealing to the voters. Compare the outward appearance of these Presidential opponents to see if this bizarre trend towards the attractive is true for you or not.

Unfortunately history has this nasty tendency to repeat itself. That goes for character flaws and superficial voting preferences alike.

In 2012 the solution is not to vote for either the weighty or grumpy old Congressman, as neither has Executive experience and both are too unattractive to beat Obama in the General Election.

There are several attractive candidates who are still in the hunt. However, the only attractive candidates with “Executive Branch” experience are the 3 Governors Romney, Huntsmen and Perry. Unfortunately, the only true conservative of the group reminds too many skittish Republicans of another Texas Governor who failed to communicate well at the podium.

In 1980 after 4 horrible years under another ultra liberal failed President, Gov. Ronald Reagan ran an unabashedly Conservative campaign with his charm, good looks and quick wit, we voted for his uplifting, Conservative vision of America in overwhelming numbers winning 44 states in 1980 and all but Mondale’s home state of Minnesota in 1984.

Despite being just a Senator, Rick Santorum can win if he emulates Ronald Reagan’s successful strategy, and runs an unabashedly Conservative, limited government, pro Constitution and pro family campaign.

From an historical perspective this is how it “looks” to me.
