Does anyone really think Mitt Romney‘s threats of pulling the station wagon over are going to make Republican candidates in the back seat behave? As Hillary implodes, Democrats are wrapping their heads around a serious Sanders nomination. We got Bloomberg in the wings and as Hillary and Jeb meltdown, who knows where this will go. In a three or four way multi candidate race, Sanders or Trump winning the general does not seem out of the range of possibilities (and what if there are insufficient electoral votes for any one candidate to get to 270 electoral votes and this election goes to the House of Representatives for resolution). Picking Antonin Scalia’s replacement is just one of the things hanging in the balance.
The fate of the Republic may hinge on the electoral college and the House of Representatives.
