Milton Friedman, Ronald Reagan — and Rumsfeld?

391: “I believe that Reagan made a mistake when he chose Bush as his vice-presidential candidate — indeed, I regard it as the worst decision not only of his campaign but of his presidency. My favorite candidate was Donald Rumsfeld. Had he been chosen, I believe he would have succeeded Reagan as president and the sorry Bush-Clinton period would never have occurred.”
