24. sure, but these guys are loyalists. They will be looking to convert others
not be converted. Human behavior follows mathematic diffusion patterns. Don't believe that everyone will just uniformly fall in line behind any one person, particularly a non-candidate. The aggregate result will follow the path of least resistance. A riot would break out before Hillary or Gore got the nomination.
