My brother in-law once was telling me about my nephew's recent soccer win. My sister-in-law interrupted him and said, "But George, Michael's team lost." George said, "Well, we woulda won if the ref hadn't made that stupid call."
I said, "George, woulda, coulda, shoulda."
George, indignant, said, "No, not at all!"
Or, as I've observed before, if things were different, they would be different.
In any event, the R primary process demonstrated the last man standing method of winning vs the dominant person/team method, kinda like the GS Warr... I mean they woulda...
