Does GOP Primary Process Help Palin?

Former Sen. Judd Gregg (R-NH) writes in The Hill that the Republican presidential nominating process could "sadly" help Sarah Palin win.

"It is entirely possible that with no presumptive winner or even favorites, a candidate who runs second or third in a great many primaries could go into the convention with a sizable block of delegates. Who would this favor? Does Sarah Palin come to mind? Although she is not viewed by most as strong enough to win, she is viewed by many as a person worth voting for to make a statement... Finishing second and third isn't really a big deal -- until you get enough delegates to be the nominee. And picking a nominee who it seems would be easily defeated by President Obama might not be the best statement."
