Twitter Dee: At the end of the day, both sides are going to have to sit down and make a full-court press. Their game plan is a real disconnect, which is a paradigm shift for social conservatives whose legacy costs are a breakthrough in desired outcomes, and that could be a real game-changer for his chances in Idaho. But the conventional wisdom is that in this economic climate any candidate must go negative and throw a bellweather narrative shift under the bus, which is a hot-button hail-Mary pass that keeps on giving.

Twitter Dum: And of course that is intended to energize the base, which is the elephant in the room.

Twitter Dee: We'll have to see what the results are like in Idaho which is a key swing battleground state that both candidates must win in order to win in the key toss-up state of Idaho.

Twitter Dum: And of course that is intended to energize the elephant, which is the base in the room.
