  •  Under that scenario (0+ / 0-)

    Mitts only hope would be enough uncommitree delagates who haven't abandoned politics.

      he'll pull off enough of the others to win.

      What I would hope for out of that scenario though is the fall out of what you describe. Mitt goes ahead and wins but the Tea Party absolutists freak out completely and make an unholy mess out of things causing the media narrative to be all about that instead of all about what a great ol' electable guy the Mittster is!

      That I think is a real possibility.
