I think 2016 is going to be more like 2000. You have a GOP that is badly bruised after losing to a guy that is an absolute failure on all levels. Our desire to not lose another one is going to trump all other feelings. One of the problems that we faced in 2012 was that Romney spent a great deal of money during the primaries and was then heavily outspent for several months in the battleground states. His image was torn to shreds. There's going to be a real push by the party to have the nomination decided by the end of February so that the nominee can raise cash and go on attack.
