mitten's big break

for months there has been a lot of talk about how the GOP is in a panic over their crop of presidential candidates. and who can blame them? it's getting later and later in the game and the field of republican candidates chock full of lunatics who will make incredibly weak candidates in the general election.

but that makes me wonder if this poll might assure mitt romney of the GOP nomination. it's the first poll that shows any of them in a competitive race with president obama. it's only one poll, but they're getting desperate. so this might be what mitt needs to get the party big-wigs solidly behind him (even if he can't plausibly explain away his history on health care reform, or his history on most other issues, for that matter)
