comment Was Reagan Disliked By Establishment Republicans?
@T.E.D.: I come from Pennsylvania, and Heinz was my Senator as well. (I take it you went to school there.) I, and others liked him personally, and would have voted for him on either ticket, although he was "left" of us. Ideologically, he could have been comfortable in the late 20th century Democratic party, although he was a Republican by birth. When his widow switched parties, she just made it "official."

comment Was it possible for one medieval warrior to defeat several opponents?
@terminex 1) the speed of the horse (typically 10-12 mph), 2) the length of the rider's lance 3) the peasants' inferior training. It's true that China's Yue Fei managed to have "trained" peasants do what you said, but that is so unusual as to be the stuff of history. It was the exception, not the rule.

This question is similar to mine, but not the same, and should not be merged, IMHO.

@PieterGeerkens: In the link you used, I wrote: "America's President Roosevelt and Britain's Winston Churchill held a conference in Casablanca, Morocco. Russia's Stalin declined to attend (citing the fighting at Stalingrad)." So it was not "all three."
