. May 4, 2007 SouthAmerica: After watching part of the Republican Party presidential debate last night I realized that finally the Republican Party found their best candidate for them to nominate during the primaries as the representative of the Republican Party in the presidential election of 2008. There is only one minor problem for the Republicans to solve in the meantime since Ronald Reagan has been dead since June 5, 2004. But after 8 years of a disastrous George W. Bush administration even electing a dead person will be an improvement for the Republican Party. You know your political party is in trouble when your best candidate has been dead for almost 3 years and he is the only thing that your party talks about. I am glad that the Republican Party finally found their best candidate for the presidential election of 2008 â Ronald Wilson Reagan. .
