Just before reading your comment similar thoughts were running in my head.
Sarah Palin's not going to be at the convention (unless Romney's numbers dip to a point of desperation).
My advice is this:
Somebody from the right (like Sarah Palin) needs to leave the Republican party the day after the election (if Romney wins) and the next 4 years the possibility of being primaried in 2016 needs to be held over his head starting on Jan 20th 2013.
It is odd that almost no republican voters know that Mitt DID leave the party, and that he became a financial supporter of democrats and a democrat fund raiser, and voted democrat in the early 1990s, only reregistering republican in October of 1993.
It is amazing what people do not know about him and his hatred of conservatives, a secret that the GOP kept pretty well.
