    Maybe the muddle will end up in an open convention. After all the Repubs changed the allocation of delegates in the early elections from winner take all to divvy it up by proportion of vote. Pretty well eliminates someone from amassing a big amount of votes in a crowded field.

    In an open convention, anything goes, could get some people who dropped out, like Sarah, or Mitch or even Mr. Trump could get nominated.

    Huntsman could actually give the President a real contest.

    The nominee will be Mitt, Newt, or Herman. And we can see how well Herman is doing lately.

    Newt's got waaay too much baggage & conservatives hate Mitt (read the text I quoted from the grand poobah himself)

    Mitt or Perry. Everyone else is a flash in the pan.

    Aside from his "treason" comment and not speaking out about some really bad audience behavior..yeah. He's a moderate, fiscally conservative, well versed on the world stage and has the political chops. However, he might make a better Democratic candidate in 2016. :lol:

    He's not as much of a flip-flopper like Mitt

    Whomever eventually gets the nomination will have the luxury of running against Barry and Dim liberalism. Sorry, that's the way it works folks.
