What will Jim Talent do?

Former Missouri Sen. Jim Talent doesn't want the imminent Blunt/Steelman duel to turn divisive, but is unwilling to back a particular candidate, which would seem a slap in establishment favorite Roy Blunt's face (ea).

.... in an interview afterward with reporters, Talent did not choose sides between Blunt and Steelman. He said he would not endorse, but encouraged both camps to "work it out," to attempt to avoid a primary. When asked if he thought Steelman should get out of the race, Talent replied, "no."
