Sarah was my first choice too, and still is. The reason I’m hoping for a Newt win in Florida is simply to stop Romney from becoming the inevitable candidate. I’m not as convinced as you seem to be that Newt is the Great Conservative Hope. Come convention time, I hope none of ‘em have a clear majority of delegates, and that someone else can be brought in to be voted for. Some have floated the idea of Mitch Daniels, but I’m still “bitterly clinging” to the idea that Sarah might yet ride in on her white horse and save us. I won’t be for Newt until he is the de facto established nominee.
