Suddenly, people like noted GOP and Romney tool Hugh Hewitt are starting to believe that the Republicans are headed to the much hoped for brokered convention. Check out this poster at Red State spinning out a possible delegate scenario where Romney comes out on top. He makes the case that a lot of the Super-Duper Tuesdays states are going to go to candidates for home state reasons, So McCain get Arizona, Fred "Sleepy" Thompson takes Tennessee and so on. Which means no one gets enough delegates on the day that going to settle it all. Now the Red State guy posits that losers would drop out and release their delegates, but the more likely outcome in a divided race would be for everyone to stay in a try a cut a deal. 500 delegates might be worth the Vice Presidency. 250 might get you a Secretary of Defense gig.

This is going to be so much fun.
