I like Perry a lot better than Santorum, but it doesn’t seem as if Perry is going to be able to get any traction. Santorum was a fluke in Iowa, and we’ll probably see him dropping in the next round, too.
That said, the one who should simply get out is Ron Paul, because he is not a Republican, there is no way he should be running in the GOP primary, there is no way this 77 year old nutcase is going to get the nomination, and he is just preventing any of the three non-Romney possibles from getting enough votes to coalesce as the leader.
The one who should get out is Hartman. And if Perry drops out, the votes would go to Santorum. Santorum is not perfect but he can win against Obama.
I agree. Ron Paul is leeching onto a Republican candidacy because it’s the only way to get notice.
He should have run as a libertarian or maybe as a weird libertarian.
If the voters reject Perry, I will sift among the ruins and try to find someone I can like a little bit.
