In 1992, Ross Perot put Bill and Monica Clinton in the Oval Office, along with Monica’s sidekick Hillary.
But his run wasn’t exactly what it seemed.
Oscar Wyatt was the chairman of Coastal Corporation in Houston, and he was the guy J.R. Ewing was based on. I was dating Oscar Wyatt’s legal secretary from 1988 to 1991 and heard all the daily gossip from the real life “Dallas”. Wyatt, John Connally and Ross Perot hated Bush, and Perot ran as a third party candidate in 1992 – just to keep Bush out of the White House.
It never had anything to do with principles. If you think you are voting for a third party candidate based on principles, think again.
