    Damn.. would have liked to see an actual race on both sides... I like McCain, but competition from someone who isn't a total wingnut keeps him honest

    Uh . . . Romney's been doing a pretty good job impersonating a wingnut for months, now.

    No, I solely meant Huckabee

    Is suspending campaign the same as withdrawing?
    It's not like there's a ton of primaries coming up in the next few weeks, just 5-6.
    Romney could jump back in if Huckabee cuts into McCain's lead. Highly unlikely, but possible.

    Huckabee hurts Romney more than McCain. Romney is going to see Huckabee in his nightmares until he shuffles off this mortal coil.
  7. The real FU moment is going to come in the middle of next week, when the Huck quits and endorses McCain. If Huck's got any balls, he flies to Boston to do it.

    I, for one, would love to see Mitt run as an independent third party candidate.

    Michael Bloomberg as a 3rd party Candidate.
  10. Fixed.

    And you have to love this part, from the Mittster's speech:

    "If I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention, I would forestall the launch of a national campaign and make it more likely that Senator Clinton or Obama would win. And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign, be a part of aiding a surrender to terror."

    He's quitting because we're at war.

    He should have made a 3-minute speech and left it at that.

    His foofery in tying it all in to the Europeans and their ho-mo-sex-u-al-i-tee and demographics was rich.

    It was as though midway through the speech he turned into the current president.

    All of that war-mongering, even against China, was pretty scary.
