Are you as surprised — shocked — as I that, except for Condoleezza Rice, no former leader of our Republican Party was allowed on the stage at last week’s Republican National Convention? Not George H.W. Bush or Dan Quayle, not George W. Bush or Dick Cheney. Not Sarah Palin. No Bush Supreme Court appointee, no military brass. No media star like Rush Limbaugh or Mike Huckabee or Glenn Beck. Why?
