You make good points but the "brokered" candidate would have four (4) months to become well-known to the American people. Most Americans are not following the Primaries and this Election right now. Most Americans will not start paying attention until September and beyond. Everybody is not the political junkies that we FReepers are. I guarantee you that if you stood outside Wal-Mart today and asked 100 people: "Who is Rick Santorum?" or "Who is Newt Gingrich?" or "Who is Mitt Romney?" It would amaze you the number of people who would not have a friggin' clue.

You mean if you spoke perfect Spanish and could ask.

I agree, mostly. However, names like Gingrich get bandied about so much, and have for years, that it sort of seeps into what passes for the brains of the average plebe. Santorum would definitely go over the heads of many Wal Mart customers.
