Mitt's out.

Well, Romney withdrew this morning. The race for the GOP nomination is effectively over. There is no difference between Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum and so no reason to vote in Saturday's caucus.

I guess the Republican party is moving the center. It will pay. Ford was a moderate and lost. H.W. Bush won on Reagan's conservative record and lost when it became evident he was a moderate. Dole was a moderate and lost. There is no reason to think it will be any different with the moderate John McCain.

That's the bad news. The good news is that pitchers and catchers report in seven days.
