I am starting to believe that Mittens is not going to be able to lock this thing down. He cannot seem to shake Santorum, which says so very much about the state the GOP base. But, the mainline GOP might broker this convention. Most of my friends seem to feel that as long as Christie says off the field, it's all good. But after I read the rules of a brokered convention, the GOP might walk away with someone other any of these guys running now. They might draft Christie, or Pawlenty......or worse Christie AND Pawlenty. That ticket would be trouble unless the economy is in maximum overdrive by that point. Christie can match Obama on the debate stage, and both he and Pawlenty are moderates with conservative street cred. Neither party is in the center, but right now the GOP is outta sight far right. The mainline GOP knows this is not a winner in a general. Do you think they will pick another ticket at the convention?
