If Romney loses the tea party will be, rightly, put in their place--as the lunatic fringe. The Republicans will be left to search for the prophet to lead them out of the wilderness--just like the Dems did in 1992 behind a fellow named Bill Clinton. Government should be about consensus, compromise, and majoritarian politics; not about division, ideology, and fringe politics. Unless the GOP understands that, their days in the wilderness will continue.
