I can't be the only person who has wondered if more Americans would participate in their elections, if the campaigning wasn't a constant drone. Day after day, month after month. Iowa has spoken. Finally. After months and months of campaigning, the state with only 6 of the 538 votes in the Electoral College has decided to back Romney. Sort of. Turns out they like Santorum and Paul almost as much.
I can remember when the Republicans were good at this sort of thing. They were known for it. They'd figure out who was the most likely candidate to gain them the White House and they would back that candidate. This year there's a consensus that Romney is that guy, but that's not good enough. If they ('they' being the many factions making up the party) can't get it done their way, they'd rather not do it at all. That's not partisan voting. That's the opposite of partisan voting. Somewhere on Pennsylvania Avenue there's a guy from Illinois already planning his next term--and who can blame him?
