Romney "Suspends" His Campaign

He's calling it a suspension of his campaign, but he's done. Toast.

He couldn't outlast Mike Huckabee, who is nothing more than a stalking horse for John McCain and drew away conservative voters who might have gone for Romney. It also showed that Romney didn't have anywhere near the support necessary to carry the South (or anywhere else).

It also shows that the pundits had no clue as to what would happen this political season. Some were suggesting that the GOP would have a brokered convention and it would be smooth sailing for Hillary Clinton. That's not how it turned out.

Hillary is in a slugfest with Obama, and it looks like it may go down to the wire, while the GOP has a whole lot of time to figure out how to reorient his campaign to the general election. It gives the GOP valuable time to prepare for the general campaign.
