Musical Chairs in Florida

First of all, it looks like Mitt Romney has trounced Newt Gingrich and everyone else in Florida.  As I write this I'm listening to Romney's victory speech.  The message is good, but I don't know if I buy the delivery, or how the rest of America will take him. I tweeted this a moment ago:
Dear GOP: You better hope Romney beats Obama or conservatives are going to have their own party in 2016.
In other Florida news, I reported recently how redistricting was pushing more Democrats into Allen West's district and endangering the one-term congressman.  West has apparently decided not to sit back and let that happen, and several congressmen are going to be moving seats.  This headline sort of explains it:
Allen West moves North, Tom Rooney moves West, Adam Hasner to CD22
West will be moving to a newly created district with a better GOP voter mix, and the other guys are making similar moves to better ensure their futures.  I hope it works.  It would be a shame to lose West or any of the other GOP congressmen.
