I agree. Republicans don't seem to realize that most democrats were comfortable with either Obama or Clinton as the nominee since both would have made qualified presidents. I am quite sure that Hillary would have done as well as Barak. Romney made millions firing others and flipped 180 degrees on multiple issues. Santorum lost his senate seat by 20 points, and both seem to think this is the 1950s. Not certain which republican candidate will be the easier opposition to Obama. Santorum is more polarizing, but Romney's support is softer. Both candidates are providing ample material for pro-Obama campaign slogans and commercials.
