Except that is, if Cameron was so desperate become PM, does, what he has all through the campaign, change his mind and sell his anti P.R. principles to become PM.

Mind you I can't see this scenario as the policies of the Lib Dems and the Tories are like oil and water almost diametrically opposed. It's more likely to be a Lib/Lab pact as their policies on the economy are more in tune, or, face another election which I doubt strongly the Lib Dems would want as they would relish the opportunity of shared power after all these years in the wilderness.

I would add that as long as the Tories are kept out of office I would be quite willing to see a Lib Dem pact and some of their policies adopted.
