How does your political garden grow?
I think we need the final four Republican primary candidates to keep this contest going until or just before the Republican Convention next August. Momentum is all important in a presidential primary campaign. It needs tending to just as if it were a garden.
This political garden needs to be watered, fertilized and pruned for its emotional blossoms to open at just the right moment.
As we have seen, there’s been plenty of political fertilizer applied to the momentum garden. We should all expect more to be applied by gardeners Romney, Santorum, Gingrich, Paul, Obama, their surrogate helpers and the professional political landscapers who will help them mold the political momentum garden.
To make a garden flourish a gardener should never over water, over fertilize or pruned beyond its ability to recover. All of the above should be applied but should be executed at the appropriate moment.
