Romney’s Self Destruct

While the Democrats are still playing out their caucuses, the Republican contest is already over and done with, and Romney got smoked by double digits.  Had it been a small loss, Romney could have come back in New Hampshire, but the significance of the huge defeat can not be overstated.

Thus, Romney’s not going to play in New Hampshire, but McCain will, making South Carolina yet another fateful state for the Republican party.  I’ve been tentative saying it until now.  I did not want to cede that Huckabee had a shot at the nomination, but given the fact that Huckabee just handed the rest of the field their teeth, I will say it now.  Huckabee is the man to beat, and for the moment, it looks like McCain is going to be the guy.
