According to reports, Donald Trump will endorse Mitt Romney today.
Yeah. So, if Mitt had snagged that Michele Bachmann endorsement earlier this week, he really could have alienated the sensible center in one swoop.
Reports have it that the Trump endorsement was worked out at the "highest levels" of the Romney campaign, and came about because of their fear of a Trump third-party candidacy.
I find it hard to believe that the Romney team is really that stupid, but I guess I've been wrong about that before.
