Romney, however, has managed the expectations of the base by cowing to them. Is that something Huntsman would do? If not, I don't see how he gets the nomination with however much he out spends Romney.
If Romney doesn't swing hard right, Santorum is the nominee, that's the Republican political landscape. And it should frighten reasonable conservatives.
