UPDATE AND BREAKING: MITT 2.0
Mitt Romney has announced that he will be holding a press conference tomorrow morning in Utah. He will not be talking about the Mormon prohibition against caffeine and the immorality of Starbucks. He will be talking about the state of the Republican party.
Let's give Mitt some credit. He correctly predicted the re-rise of Russia and the national security problems they now pose. He would be a credible if not potentially winning candidate against Hillary Clinton. It was not too long ago when a credible challenger's career wasn't over after a loss in the presidential race or the primaries.
In 1976 Ronald Wilson Reagan and President Ford went into the convention in Kansas City without either of them having sufficient delegates necessary to secure the nomination on the first ballot. It was the last "open convention" Ford used the power of a sitting president and secured the delegates he needed, but went on to lose to James Earl Carter who went on to lose to Reagan four years later. And of course Adlai Stevenson lost two presidential elections to Dwight David Eisenhower.
The point is, for everything there is a season. Romney's time might be now. Running against Obama and all of the historical weight of his presidency was a nearly impossible task in 2012. And yet Mitt is by far and away the most qualified person that the Republicans have to challenge Hillary Clinton and be president if successful.
Mitt could be it after all.
He wins big on Super Tuesday.
