I would love to see a brokered convention. I’m not thrilled with any of the remaining choices and we may well want to see what would come out of there that we could actually support. It certainly couldn’t be any worse then Romney.
If you think about it, the purpose of the Republican convention is to assemble delegates from around the country to choose the presidential nominee, draft a platform, etc.
Why is it bad if we don’t get a nominee from the first dozen or so states which have voted so far? You figure that if Romney, or anyone else, had it “locked up” right now, it would be because he was the last man standing, not because he had enough delegates nailed down by now. It would have been because everyone else had dropped out.
Why are people afraid of a convention in which the identity of the nominee is not known before the vote?
Why would it be good if Romney, or another, was the last man standing, and the remaining states voting would simply be expected to ratify the decisions made in the early states voting?
Are people afraid of how the liberals would showcase a brokered convention, and decisions made there? The talking heads on MSNBC are going to be critical no matter what happens at the GOP convention.
