As much as I have problems with Newt Gingrich, I think Sarah Palin is right when she said on the Hannity show that conservatives should just vote for Newt in SC to keep the process going, and avoid handing Flip-Flop Romney the nomination.
Newt has the best chance of overtaking Flip in SC, according to the latest polls. As much as I would prefer Rick Santorum, splitting the conservative vote between three conservative candidates will guarantee a Romney victory in SC, and thus, an Obama victory in November.
So I would like to agree with Sarah Palin, and urge all conservative SC voters to "hold their noses" and vote for Newt this Saturday. This doesn't mean Newt will win the GOP nomination. It is only a strategic move to prevent Flip from locking the nomination up, and Obama from winning another 4 years.
(I really wish Rick Santorum would have skipped NH altogether. I think he would have been in much better shape in SC if he did.)
