    The Gingrich surge was wholly predictable in SC, where he has a natural advantage. But now the SC bounce if fading and Romney abandons the prevent defense and unleashes his all out blitz.

    Yes he had his scary moment, but I still think Romney is in excellent shape.

    Intrade agrees, tapping his odds for the nom at over 80%.

    As Kunsoo pointed out (very astutely, BTW) last week, this whole process could help Romney, as Bain Capital and the other recent attacks could be stale by the time the general campaign comes around.

    Yep, since you can't judge character you have to substitute odds. Gingrich is far from being done. He is flush with cash and has not even started to spend it. New flash for those who don't know - Rednecks run Florida not Cubans. But hey, Romney is the weakest candidate the Republicans could field, I hope he wins.

    Rubio would be a good choice, but I'm sure he'd much rather have Jeb Bush.

    Jeb Bush ? No.

    Rubio is by far the best choice. Rubio on the ticket, any ticket, is a win win situation. Republicans have been discussing this for at least a year now. Maybe longer.

    I agree.

    Romney-Rubio seems likely to be an excellent ticket, though of course, it's impossible to really know how good Rubio would be on the campaign trail until we see it.

    Romney gives me the runs. Gingrich makes me throw up in the trashcan while I'm sitting on the pot.

    I dont even want to mention what happens when Nancy Pelosi comes on the TV !
