Score One for Romney

So Romney takes Michigan. How amusing. The ultimate ideology-free chameleon, he beat McCain convincingly. This means we now have three Republican front-runners, with the possibility of more to come (remember Giuliani?). Thing is though, none of the three winners so far have a thing in common – the nationwide Republican coalition is fracturing rapidly. Without a coherent ideology to drive them it isn’t remotely clear what’s holding them together – ‘family values’? Reaganite economics? Neoconservatism? Religion? So far it’s all of the above in different places. Weird contest, this.
