    and it's meant to encourage "mainstream" (in the karl rove sense) candidates, but none have been encouraged.  and when it comes down to it, if a serious contender, who has a clear path to endorsement and primary victory, asks them for support, they'll give it.

    norm coleman was endorsed.  tim pawlenty was endorsed. and a big money moderate would still probably lose to an endorsed conservative in a primary.

    i don't want to give these folks advice, but the way governor dayton did it is the way.  run hard in the primary, don't say a bad word about the endorsement process or anyone committed to it, and unite after.
