"How to Save the Republican Party"

After reading this much-discussed Krauthammer column--"Want to save the Republic? Win the next election."--I was reminded of the scene from Rocky II.

(I saw Rocky II the weekend it opened in Westwood CA. I was studying for my first-year comprehensive exams and badly wanted a break. When this scene had finished I had witnessed nearly a thousand people in a movie theater stand and scream and lose almost every ounce of their minds. Corny? Maybe. But when people cheer at the top of their lungs for a fictional character, you'd best not to sell it short. It's on my list of the Top 25 Movie Scenes of All Time.)
