Wild swings of enthusiasm from Republican voters for any number of candidates from Rick Perry to Herman Cain are the result of a Republican electorate that has yet to find a candidate that matches its Tea Party tilt to the right. Yet pragmatists in the party – as well as elements of the establishment – are coalescing around Romney as the “inevitable candidate.”

There are good reasons for this.
