How far to the right will Mitt Romney have to go in order to fend off his Republican primary challengers? And assuming he gets the nomination, will he get whiplash when he turns to the actual election, where he must appeal to independents and moderates?

    The GOP have put themselves in a no-win situation. They can’t get the base to support a candidate unless they’re an extremist, but they can’t get the votes to win unless the candidate is a moderate. Romney is the only thing they have going for them at this point, because he’s the only one slippery enough to appeal to both groups in the same sentence.
