They're both Mormon.

For a minute there

I thought they put Reagan's picture on Drudge


anyways,

Mitt lives to die another day

he will not do well in SC at all

has a shot in FL,
a silver could do

he has a very good shot for a gold in NV


it will be next to impossible for him to capture the nomination without any real wins out of the "Southern strategy" states.

That's quite possible. I hadn't thought of that.

They were reporting tonight that the Huckabee camp was secretly hoping Romney would win, so that McCain wouldn't become unstoppable. But that doesn't make sense to me. With a Romney victory, he might take away votes from Huckabee and help McCain win, like you said. If McCain had won Michigan, some of Romney's votes (realizing that their candidate is finished) may have switched over to Huckabee, or at the very least, Huckabee wouldn't have lost any votes. But now I think he may have. If McCain had won, it basically would have been a 2-person race in SC. But now, McCain will still be a threat, with Romney and Thompson breathing down Huck's neck.

So if I was Huck, I'd have been praying for a Romney defeat.

it's early yet.

mitt has the best managerial skills, is ethical and has the best exectutive experience.

john mc cain panders to the left a little too much. i liked huck until i watched him become disingenious in interviews and found out how soft he is on law and order.

fred altho one of the purest conservatives cannot connect w the masses.

rudy is a decent choice but has too much personal baggage.

be prepared for a brokered GOP convention.

Did you all see this? Sorry if I missed it somewhere else...


Clinton won less than a quarter of support from black voters.

(CNN) - Hillary Clinton faced a grim statistic in Michigan tonight, despite her primary "win" there: results revealed that she may have reason to worry about her grasp on the African-American vote.

The Michigan primary vote was essentially meaningless: the national party stripped the state of its delegates because it held its contest too early in the election season, and Clinton was the only major Democratic contender whose name appeared on the ballot.

Even so, roughly 70 percent of Michigan's African-American voters - a group that makes up a quarter of Michigan's Democratic electorate - did not cast their votes for Clinton, choosing the "uncommitted" option instead. Yet these voters weren't uncommitted at all: in fact, according to CNN exit polls, they overwhelmingly favored Barack Obama, whose name did not appear on the ballot.

Had Obama's name been on the Michigan ballot, CNN exit polls show that he would have won an overwhelming 73 percent of the African-American vote, in contrast to 22 percent who say they would have voted for Clinton under those circumstances. If South Carolina's large African-American community votes as Michigan's, Hillary may not be feeling much 'southern hospitality' in that state.

I want to add that I thought all 3 candidates did a stellar job last night during the debate. Yes, even Hillary gave some really good answers.
