It’s a pipe dream. The convention will not be brokered. Santorum and Gingrich have to say that because the proportional allocation has made it so they both are essentially mathematically eliminated already.
Regardless, I promise to do everything I can to defeat Barack Obama this November.
True if they continue to chase delegates 3:1 to Mittens. If that holds, all soft delegates will blindside the two conservatives on the second ballot, if it came to that. Look for the delegates with their arms twisted behind their backs.
However, if one of the conservatives were to pledge their delegates to the other, that would get interesting real quick. But that's not going to happen, either.
