Its a real balancing act for the candidate to appear to say the "right" things, but still leave a passage back to the center when he's the nominee. Just exchange center > right and you have the Obama blueprint. A few teabaggers will boycott the vote if Mittens wins the primaries, but the GOP would be banking on the many more moderate conservatives coming back to the fold to take up the slack. Just like progressive Democrats, a lot of die-in-the-wool Republicans will be thinking "who else?"
