Caucusing for Romney . . . voting for Obama?

Tuesday (tomorrow) night is caucus night in Minnesota, and it's the first time I'll be convening one.
I had been volunteering for the Rudy Guiliani campaign for much of last year, but with Rudy's implosion after Florida, I'm now back with Mitt Romney.
If Romney drops out after a poor finish on Super Tuesday, however, it does look like I may end up voting for Barack Obama over John McCain in the general election for a couple of reasons:

1)The Republicans in Congress may be more likely to resist a lefty Obama administration than a McCain one, and:

2)Whatever we may suffer from an Obama administration, we can blame on the Democrats. If we roll over and let John McCain strengthen McCain-Feingold, sign off on Global Warming legislation, and clamp down on the blogosphere, we'll have only ourselves to blame.

That said, I will work like hell for the re-election of Norm Coleman and our various state-wide candidates.

For the love of Mike, listen to wisdom.
Answer me this; If you vote for Obama, how does that make you on the side of conservative causes such as winning the war on terror?
It doesn't. It makes you just another uninformed liberal voting his self-interest.
