    Of course, Romney has the best chance of winning. The Republican and Democratic party's only interest is in winning, not making a political statement.

    The only goal of capitalism is profit. The only goal of politics is winning. Nothing else matters.

    But that's the problem. The Republican party isn't interesting in winning if the establishment doesn't control the message.

    Which is why they'd rather put up sure fire losers like Bob Dole or John McCain than people who will rock the boat.

    For the Country Club "I've got mine, screw you" wing of the Party, the worst thing that ever happened to them was Ronald Reagan. He wasn't one of their boys. They want to make sure that will never happen again.

    No, he doesn't.

    First, there are a lot of us out here who simply will not vote for a Mormon. There are a lot more people who will discover, "Wow, Mormons really are nuts" when people start talking about what they actually beleive about baptizing dead people and dark skin being a curse from God.

    Second, Romney isn't likable. I am always amazed when people talk electability when this fool has lost far more elections than he won.

    His biggest victory was winning a whopping 49% of the Massachusetts electorate in 2002. In fact, it was his only real victory. Ever.

    He was running against a non-entity (quick can you name the woman he beat without Wiki?) in a Republican Year after spending 7 million dollars for the privilage. It's kind of like bragging about how many fish you caught at the Red Lobster.

    Usually, when he runs against an opponent who has, you know, a name like Ted Kennedy or John McCain, he loses.

    Third- and here's the important one, he comes pretty much tailor made for the kind of campaign Obama has to run. Obama has to run against Wall Street. He has to run against these guys who have made record profits and still aren't hiring folks.

    And who do the Republicans offer up. SOme asshole who put thousands of guys out of work in a pump and dump at AmPad. A guy who moved hundreds of jobs to China.

    I mean, I guess that's popular if your the kind of Republican who watches "It's a Wonderful Life" and cheers for Mr. Potter.

    The problem all the Republican candidates face is the Tea Party is the only strong voice in the Republican Party. Yet, the Tea Party is increasingly swimming against the tide of public opinion among most Americans. For a candidate to win the nomination, they need some support from the Tea Party but in the general election they need the support of the people which are not one and the same.
