Mary, I thought this way, too, but Reagan's article convinced me that Bush could have been helpful--in a few very specific ways. I definitely don't think he should have been linked with the Romney campaign directly or appeared at the Convention, but he could have answered those criticisms by placing the economic blame where it mostly belonged (with Congressional Democrats) and also campaigned among Latinos, who have been reasonably favorable toward him.That said, I am not surprised he remained below the radar--his father did the same when he was defeated by Clinton.
