A Random Question

If - and this is a mighty big IF - the nominees are Huckabee and Obama, with third party runs by Bloomberg and Paul, what happens to the traditional party die-hards on both sides? Does the Republican establishment back Huckabee after all the Huck-a-bashing they've given him over his refusal to toe the party line on fiscal issues and foreign policy? Does the Democratic establishment back Obama after all the attacks on his principled bi-partisanship? Does either party's establishment back Bloomberg after all the ridicule they've heaped on the idea of a Unity '08 run?
