“does anyone stop and think where we would be had Sarah or Newt or Rick gotten the nod?”
Rick was a hell of a fighter. Turned a nothing campaign and was written off prior to Iowa into the last man standing.
Had Newt dropped, he would have taken Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, and would have taken it to the convention vs Mitt.
But, Newt stayed in, split the vote, Romney took advantage and he is now the nominee. Pity.
Thanks Newt! Will remember that well over the next 4 years of Obama.
