    At the moment Rick Santorum appears to be overtaking Newt Gingrich as the principal challenger to Mitt Romney. Santorum has won more contests than Gingrich (who has won only one), has more delegates, and leads him in the polls. In at least one poll, he also leads Romney. It isn’t yet a Romney–Santorum contest, but it could be headed that way.We hope so. Gingrich’s verbal and intellectual talents should make him a resource for any future Republican president. But it would be a grave mistake for the party to make someone with such poor judgment and persistent unpopularity its presidential nominee. It is not clear whether Gingrich remains in the race because he still believes he could become president next year or because he wants to avenge his wounded pride: an ambiguity that suggests the problem with him as a leader. When he led Santorum in the polls, he urged the Pennsylvanian to leave the race. On his own arguments the proper course for him now is to endorse Santorum and exit.

    Santorum has been conducting himself rather impressively in his moments of triumph and avoiding characteristic temptations. He is doing his best to keep the press from dismissing him as merely a “social-issues candidate.” His recent remark that losing his Senate seat in 2006 taught him the importance of humility suggests an appealing self-awareness. And he has rightly identified the declining stability of middle-class families as a threat to the American experiment, even if his proposed solutions are poorly designed. But sensible policies, important as they are, are not the immediate challenge for his candidacy. Proving he can run a national campaign is.

    O Blah Blah worshipers and his attack dogs in the media will now go to work on Santorum. We'll know more about Santorum's history (real and made up), within two weeks, than we know about O Blah Blah after three years.

    they already started, there was an article about Santorum's wife and how she was living with an abortion doctor when she meet Rick. I'll see if I can find it

    I am unsure why you think such things come from Obama supporters and the mythical liberal media when Romney supporters have shown the willingness to go negative on his Republican opponents. Occam's Razor and all that ....

    could be from Romney, either way it's pathetic

    Polls are indicating that Santorum will take Michigan, which would be a huge blow to Romney, with it being his home state and all.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    I thought it was rude to allow one of his childhood homes to be torn down.
