Political parties are ad hoc organizations.    (02)

As Bismarck said, "Every man has two reasons -- a good one and the
real one."  The so-called "platforms" written at conventions state
the "good reasons" for winning votes.  But you're not likely to find
any two members of any party whose "real reasons" exactly coincide
with one another or with the platform they agreed to support.    (03)
