    He should go to the CPAC conferenc and blast the inclusion of White Supremecists:

    -- The CPAC nuts already hate him and there's nothing he can do about that.

    -- The vast majority of rank and file Republicans don't like white supremecists, so he wouldn't alienate a majority of the votes he needs to be the nominee.

    -- He would show all of America that he does actually have a backbone, something no one thinks right now.

    --He would force his opponents to debate the issue, either siding with the White Supremecist extremists, or joining him in denouncing the nuts.

    -- He would instantly chagne the subject away from the fact that no one likes Mitt, and he'd sort of be able to argue that the people who don't like him just don't like him because he called out white supremecists.

    He won't do it of course, because he's Mitt Romney.
    But he should.
