    and airlift in a nominee at the convention.

    That would then be somebody fresh with no vetting or attack history, and with conservatives having total air superiority little opportunity for Democrats to paint and attack the Republican.

    Either way there hasn't been a fraction thrown at Obama of what's coming. We're not sufficiently taking into account the conditions we'll have leading up to the election.

    •  I don't really see who they can bring (6+ / 0-)

      in at this point that's not going to piss off some group of Republicans, enough that they may consider staying home in November.

      And thanks to the Internet, the vetting and attack history can be easily handled -- look what Dan Savage did with just a redefinition of "Santorum" or what a little Photoshop of Romney to Rmoney does to set a meme.
