3. I think you are probably right there

There's no way he'll be a Democrat. He's far too selfish. However, he's been thoroughly disgusted by the Republicans and will switch to Indie--unless they dangle the 2016 nomination in front of him, which they might.

I tend to think 2013 and 2014 will be fairly quiet, the GOP keeping a lower profile and trying to hang onto the House. There will be far less grandstanding. They'll be trying to look responsible and reasonable.

Starting in mid 2015, all hell will start to break loose, culminating in their convention. The Reagan coalition were told to sit down, shut up and do as they were told in 2012 for the good of the party and their most "electable" candidate, Mitt. Since we know that didn't work out for them, I doubt those people will be as well behaved in 2016. Some of the fights might even be on camera. I hope so. Having courted and used white trash for years, they're overdue for a white trash meltdown finishing their image as the "grownup" party off forever.

The only way that party can survive is if the religiously insane and insanely stupid people Reagan brought in leave to form their own party.
