I thought the PEOPLE voted in primaries, not ONLY the party hacks. Prudence says make the best with the cards dealt in your hand. There is still the opportunity to elect Tea-party types to congress. Mitt is pliable.
It would be nice to think that the Tea Party could pull Romney to the right but I highly doubt it. The Romney family contempt for conservatives runs deep. I believe that Romney's liberal tendencies will draw him into a left-of-center coalition with the Democrats and RINOs with Mitt claiming the mantle of the great reconciler. He'll pick a couple of fights with the Tea Partiers to claim to be the "reasonable" one who will stand up to the radical right. When it's all said and done, Romney will probably accomplish more of the leftist domestic agenda than Obama could have with unified Republican opposition.

You might want to skip that card analogy. That's a great strategy to lose all your money. Prudent poker players will generally fold when they are dealt a junk hand.
That’s why the primaries should be held on the same day. By the time a lot of states vote, the damage is done.
