Of the whole speech, I think

Of the whole speech, I think that is where Rand failed.

The Republican party of today and of Reagan is definitely not the Republican party of Lincoln.

This was a perfect opportunity to explain how he is trying to return the party to its roots, to the platform that the Republican party claims but doesn't follow through on.

It was a missed opportunity, I assume because he was trying to avoid a battle within the party.
