Here is what I wrote shortly after the death of Herman Cain: By now, many of you have heard about the heartbreaking loss of my former boss Herman Cain who died from complications associated with COVID-19. Some have predictably used it as an opportunity to score political points, unconcerned with the hurt so many people are facing right now.

Newt Gingrich will be exiting the race next week.  Newt not only will endorse Mitt Romney for President, Newt will pledge to work without rest to defeat Obama. Is there anyone Romney would rather have on his side than Newt? Oh yes, Newt will go there so...

Just breaking, via NY Times: Rick Santorum is suspending his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination on Tuesday, according two of his advisers, bowing to the inevitability of Mitt Romney’s nomination and ending his improbable, come-from-behind quest to become the party’s conservative standard-bearer in the fall.
