I just want to say that it really bothers me that Rick Santorum is even in the discussion of possible candidates for President.

The only upside to having him in is it splits the hyper-conservative vote. The downside is Romney's the alternative to that. I think it helps Paul in the main having him and Gingrich in together, so I don't cry over it, but if he were to actually win the nomination, it would be frightening. We'd be an economic collapse or a foreign policy disaster away from President Santorum.

My best hope at this point is Paul continues all the way to the convention, gets a substantial delegate count, and has a seat at the table when it comes to speeches, ideas, etc. I have never gone in thinking he would win (though I've always said the biggest reason he doesn't have a chance is people who claim to like him still won't vote for him because he supposedly "can't win"). But having his ideas discussed is helpful to the party, I think. And the Republican party needs all the help it can get at this point. If Kucinich or Mike Gravel or someone along those lines was running as a Democrat this year and won the nomination, I'd vote Democrat for President for the first time ever over Romney, Gingrich or Santorum. 10 times out of 10 I'd do that.

I am proud that I had the privilege to cast my vote for Rick Santorum as the Republican nominee for the President of The United States of America.

And Sunday alcohol sales.

Should not shock anyone that you are in favor of Santorum tongue.png

Looks like it could be a good night for Romney. Exit polls have him leading by about 3-4% in Ohio and early returns have him doing well in Vermont. InTrade has him winning all of the four caucuses where polling isn't available, which means he could rack up a 150-200 delegate lead out of the 800 or so allocated tonight. If he wins all of the states that InTrade shows him winning then he's likely to walk away with the nomination over the next few weeks. If Gingrich doesn't get over 50% of Georgia then I think he drops out and probably endorses Santorum (though I wouldn't be shocked if he endorsed Romney).

ABC News has Gingrich carrying Georgia. The battle will wage on.

If that's the only state he wins and he doesn't win with 50%, what is his justification for staying in the race? That is literally the only state he could win right now and he can't even win handily enough to get all of the delegates.
