The people who run the Republican Party are very smart. They have picked an obviously unqualified buffoon as their presidential candidate. If he wins they have a completely manipulable puppet in the
White House (sort of like Reagan after he was shot). A win also proves to themselves just how powerful their party and their money are. On the other hand, given the fact that Gore should have an advantage with the state of the economy, if the Democrats win, the Republicans haven't wasted a useful future candidate. On top of that, since the electorate seems to want to create balance between the levels of government, a candidate like Bush may improve their chances in Congress. It's a no-lose situation for the Republicans.
