Probably Hoover. Stuff’s pretty good in America, the economy is buzzing along. We’ve had 8 years of Republican prosperity, and there’s no reason we can’t have 8 more. And Hoover’s certainly qualified for the job. He’s an engineer and humanitarian. The man fed Europe after the war, and as Commerce Secretary, has regulated but not overregulated, helping contribute to prosperity. Electing him will let him turn that managerial expertise to the whole country. And, his running mate is American Indian, an example of the racial progressiveness that the Republican party stands for, and is an accomplished Senator and Majority Leader in his own right.
Smith, on the other hand, has ties to the Tammany political machine.
