If you've never seen the famous incident in 1964 when that once not-so-rare but now mythical beast known as the Republican liberal, in this Gov. Nelson Rockefeller, got booed loudly by Goldwaterites at the 1964. I grew up in NY State and my family voted for numerous GOP liberals named Rockefeller, Keating, Javits and others. The only black U.S. Senator was Edward Brooke, Republican of Massachusetts. The Goldwater takeover of 1964 eventually led to Reagan in 1980 and the rest is history.
