Gingrich eyes dropping out, combining forces with Santorum

Newt Gingrich recently admitted he may drop out of the race and throw his support behind Rick Santorum in an effort to deny Mitt Romney a clear path to the GOP presidential nomination. While some in the GOP fear a floor-fight for the nomination, one must remember that the struggle between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, only four years ago, came down to the wire as well, and that did not prevent Obama from winning in November.

It doesn’t require a degree online in political science to figure this out. Those uttering doomsday prophecies if the battle for the nomination continues much longer are largely from the Romney camp, who wish to be handed the nomination on a silver platter.

Personally, my favorite guy was Hermain Cain and none of the three folks left in the race strike me as wildly appealing in the way Cain did.

But all three of them would be a significant improvement over the Obama Administration, including Romney, and ultimately that’s what counts.

I don’t hate Mitt Romney. I will vote for him over Obama in a hot second. But is Romney my ideal candidate? Far from it. But I’m willing to give him four years to prove me wrong.
