Political prediction

The alignment of Newt and the Palin crowd will not go unchallenged.
A dark horse candidate is biding their time, avoiding the embarrassment of the debate debacle, and will step forward in time to rally the majority of Republican delegates that make it to their convention. It will be a massively staged event and will distance the Republican establishment from the teaparty fringe that has only proven divisive at best. The chances of this candidate defeating Obama are no more or less greater than any one in the present field but it would bring some purpose, unity, and sanity back to the Republicans and send the far right racists back to their holes. Rove and crowd will be happy to have reclaimed their power over the party even if it means losing to Obama, again.

2. Maybe if Jeb changes his last name to "Smith".

American's forget their history pretty quickly, but "Bring Back Bush" is still going to be a hard sell for the majority of voters.

3. I have no clue who will step forward

Pawlenty? Huckabee?
The poor Republicans have a rather shallow pool since the Bush family drained all the water out.

5. Exactly

The Republican powers that be will not be set aside.
We may be seeing the pay back for their "southern strategy".
