    If the Republicans could put forth a reasonable candidate, he or she would have better than even odds of defeating the incumbent, President Barack Obama, in the 2012 election. The economy — an excellent predictor of election results — is in bad shape.

    People are scared and they want change. Incumbents have the potential to get wiped out by the dozens next fall, and party labels are unlikely to matter. No one in DC is safe.

    Despite a handful of candidates who might appeal across party lines and attract votes from Democrats and Independents, Republican primary voters seem insistent on nominating whatever impossibly obtuse candidate says the most outlandish, ridiculous things in a given week.
