MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Monday night reported the revelation that former President George H.W. Bush’s campaign team considered picking actor Clint Eastwood as his running mate in 1988. At the time, Eastwood was a Republican mayor. Instead, Bush chose little-known U.S. Senator Dan Quayle of Indiana.
