Great Article but a correction is in order

Brokered conventions can be unpredictable – Herbert Hoover walked into the 1920 RNC with only 7% of the delegates on his side before winning the nomination on the tenth ballot and becoming the President five months later. The John R. Phillippe, Jrs. don't like Ron Paul getting a foothold in this process because they fear the will of the Republican national delegates.

NOT... on June 8th 1920, the RNC elected Warren G Harding. In 1924 it was Coolidge and in 1928 it was Hoover.
