Cleaned up the candidate list. Listed next ten Primary/Caucus dates. Added Delegate counts todate.
I've updated the counts.
FYI at this point.
Mitt must win less then 46% of the remaining Delegates.
Santorum must win less then 70% of the remaining Delegates.
Newt must win less then 80% of the remaining Delegates.
Paul must win less then 86% of the remaining Delegates.
I think I have to agree with Mitt. It's time to close this thing and give him the nod. I would say wait around until Mitt buries Santorum in Pennsylvania but I don't feel like waiting another month (April 24). Barry is the target now. (I mean opponent, not target. damn.) Them other guys had a shot. They came up short. Time to move on.
He was talking about strategy. I get it. Most don't. Jump on it all you want. But ask yourself this...If Romney gets the nod today, do you think the Etch a Sketch thing means that from tomorrow until Novermber he is going to say "Obamacare is good, abortions are good, etc".
If he says it after he's sworn in, shame on me. For you to imply what you're implying now, well, shame on you.
The whole etch-a-sketch fiasco is lame as can be. In my opinion it backfires and just makes those pouncing on it look lame.
I have never liked Santorum. There's just something about him that rubs me the wrong way. I stated somewhere here the other day how I was increasingly noticing an angry bird undertone in his voice when he starts talking through clenched teeth. It's like he is smoldering inside about to explode. He seems the sort that would get truly mad at you if he lost to you in a friendly card game and never be your friend again. That's just the vibe I get from observing his body language. And now today this:
If whinny little Ricky can't win he wants everyone to lose.
From the article, Mitt's response:
"I am in this race to defeat Barack Obama and restore America's promise. I was disappointed to hear that Rick Santorum would rather have Barack Obama as president than a Republican. This election is more important than any one person. It is about the future of America. Any of theRepublicans running would be better than President Obama and his record of failure."

Norquist may be on to something since Romney appears to be a squish. I may be wrong and he grows a spine and articulates a vision in the general election and carries out that vision while in office; challenging the base of his party on issues where they disagree. But I doubt it.
