    Rick Perry is probably the best candidate the Democrats can hope for.   Obama needs a blabbermouth with crackhead ideas for an opponent.  (Remember the "Bernanke=treason" remark?) If Romney is the nominee although he's no darling of the Teabaggers they'll vote for him as the lesser evil.  There'll be plenty for the Dems to hit him on, because his positions have been all over the map, but nominating Perry would be like nominating Sarah Palin.  His bagger pals will vote for him, but virtually nobody else, so his proportion of the vote will be in line with the country's favorable opinion of the baggers, which runs about 18%.
