Nonetheless, it does not follow that the Democratic style lacks any advantages over that of the Republicans. In the short run it appears disruptive, but in the long run it is more stable.

Except for its core values, the Republican Party is likely to change directions when it changes leaders. If it were to change directions too drastically, it could undermine both its credibility and its programs. Thus the contest for the 1988 Republican nomination for President may essay on books are our best friends in hindi reverberations throughout party, while that for the Democratic nomination will reflect in part what has happened in the Party. One of the most common observations of the Democratic Party is how much more fractious it is than the Republican Party.

Only the Republican Party has an Commandment - thou shalt not criticize a fellow Republican. Thus during the 1984 Conventions, such Republican adversaries as liberal Sen. Lowell Weicker (Conn. ) and conservative Rep. Trent Lott (Miss. ) curbed their criticism of each other in public while leading figures in the Democratic Party whose mutual disagreements were comparatively minor let their complaints be constantly quoted in the press.

In 1980 NOW voted not to endorse Jimmy Carter and at the convention led a floor fight for a minority plank strongly disliked by the candidate. Despite this opposition in an election year and the fact that no one thought NOW would possibly defect to the Republicans, NOW President Ellie Smeal was invited to meet with President Carter that fall, and was subsequently (after Carter's defeat) hired as a consultant to the DNC.
