First off, I would love to see obama replaced by almost anyone, the biggest exclusion to that being hillary clinton. With that said, if conservatives don't band behind someone, no matter how bad obama does he is going to get a second term. The problem I see is that the party is totally split. You have the palin supporters who are socially conservative and make up foreign policy as they go along. Then you have the romney guy who wants to double guantanmo, but allows socialized medicine while governor. You then have the ron paul supporters (myself included) who are against basically everything the government does now making the chance of him winning slim. The best compromise I can see is palin getting the nod, and winning over a decent number of romney and paul supporters. Both romney and paul are too polarizing by themselves and even a compromise at the VP spot isn't going to sway people past whoever is going to be president. The problem with palin is that I don't see her lasting unscripted debates + getting past the general hatred of her by a large segment of the population. Are there some other people I am missing that could actual unite the conservatives or will the country be split into some odd combination of three parties - democrats, social conservatives, and libertarians? Maybe the GOP is working on this and I missed it?
