I’ve come to the conclusion that Topp is the best of the candidates as matters stand now based on his obvious strengths in policy command and organizational acumen, as well as the progress he’s made in his public presentation.
But equally importantly, even if he’s indeed at the bottom of the second tier for the moment, a candidate who’s written the book on how to make deals under fire looks like the best option to use his voting bloc to secure the best possible compromise outcome at the leadership convention. So if I had to vote today, it would be Topp leading the way.
