  •  The GOP does have a tradition of nominating (13+ / 0-)

    their runner up.

    Romney was second to McCain.

    McCain was second to Bush.

    Buchanan was second to Dole but not even Republicans ever though Pat was a viable Presidential candidate.

    There was no primary to speak of in 1992.

    Dole was second to Bush in 1988.

    If you view Santorum as the runner-up, then he is the odds-on favorite to be their nominee in 2016.

    Better start figuring out who the Democratic dream candidate is, because we can nominate Bernie Sanders / Al Franken and beat Santorum.

    Economics is a social *science*. Can we base future economic decisions on math?

      He did well enough that he got to give that (in)famous speech at the 1992 Repuke convention. I remember watching that speech thinking "Bill Clinton just won the election".

      A village can not reorganize village life to suit the village idiot.
