Can they unite?

Looking back on 2008 and 2012 one of the things that benefited McCain and Romney was a divided opposition. Neither of the eventual nominees ever really captured the heart of their party’s faithful.  They simply won enough of the “Establishment” and moderates to put them over a divided opposition.

In this spirit a recent tweet by Erick Erickson of Redstate.com  tweeted:

Many of the people adamantly opposed to Rubio now were as opposed to Romney & McCain. Gotta unite behind one alternative to be effective.

This is a clear sign that the conservative activist base is going to try and unite around one candidate to stop someone from the “Establishment” from getting the nomination.  Of course getting politicians to step aside and let someone else command the army to glory is a whole other matter.
