No: Quitting early was not "right"


And it was the Grassroots who were the only ones out there still trying...while the candidate himself was not (and just disappeared on them).

Lesson from History: ANDREW JACKSON DID NOT QUIT.

If you want the people to "make things happen", then you have to first be a credible candidate. And a credible candidate clearly does not abdicate the race early, and walk-away from 70,000+ sized-crowds, 4-whole months before any of the voting is even officially settled.

Can you imagine Andrew Jackson quitting 4-whole months before the Nomination?

He took on the Bankers head-on, no meeley-mouthed stuff, no back-tracking, no apologies, no quitting, no cowardice, no retreat.

In fact, that is the only way that an underdog can win.
