Brokered convention? BS, not likely.
Exactly. We hear the hysterical "brokered convention" talk every cycle and it just isn't likely to happen.
If Newt continues improving as a candidate and wins the nomination, the "establishment" will fall in line. They may fight him all the way, but if Gingrich proves too strong to stop, the folks complaining about him will just change their tune and declare he's grown as a person and a candidate.
The primary process has largely rendered the brokered convention obsolete. At least as far as the GOP is concerned. The beltway rulers may not like it but the most they can do is shoot themselves in the foot. Which they did in 2008 and might well do again.
