How often have we heard that conservatives must coalesce support behind one candidate or we are doomed to another four years of Democrat X? Or that conservatives must somehow unite in support of one candidate in order to break the more likely path to the nomination... the establishment's next in lin-o RINO? We may not have heard those exact combinations of words, but no doubt all have heard or read similar sentiments many times.
Am I saying that those who express those sentiments are wrong or that they should stop expressing them? No. The sentiments are likely to be correct, but there are sticky issues to be overcome if they are to be converted into action.
