    In 1987, when then-Vice President George Bush ran for president, he suffered a major embarrassment early: He lost the Ames Straw Poll to televangelist Pat Robertson.

    WASHINGTON — Lindsey Graham of South Carolina on Thursday — the very day the bachelor senator was dubbed a “bro with no ho” by his fellow Senate Republican Mark Kirk of Illinois — proclaimed himself to be “on the right side of history.”
