Did the smoke filled back room system produce better candidates ?

So the primary season is almost over except for DC I believe. The presumptive nominees are The Donald and Hillary, both of whom have “issues”.

So a general question I will throw out. Did the old system generally characterized as the smoke filled back room with the party operatives choosing the nominee. Did that system produce better candidates ?

I am curious what other fellow dopers here think on that question. Note……This is not a discussion on the merits of the current candidates. Plenty of other places here to discuss that.
