So Republicans need "a candidate voters believe in" in order to win? And where are we going to find such a candidate? Romney wasn't a perfect candidate, but he was better than McCain. Or "W". Or George H. W. Bush. So what makes you think we can find someone better than Romney? On the other hand, nobody in their right mind could ever vote for Obama. Or Kerry. Or Gore. Or Clinton. Evidently anyone can win most of the popular vote if he has a "D" after his name. This Country is finished.
