The GOP Should Copy the Dixiecrats-in one minor way. Josh Claybourn, among others, is reporting on the 2004 GOP convention coming after Alabama's filing deadline, possibly forcing President Bush to run as a write-in candidate. Why couldn't the Alabama GOP say that they're going to have Dubya as their candidate regardless of what the national party does? If I remember correctly, the Democratic party substituted pro-Jim-Crow candidates for the national nominee in Southern states more than once back in the 50s and 60s. Not a great precedent, but one to think about.
