Losing elections is an excellent predictor.
Rick Santorum is a loser. He is, in fact, a BIG loser, having lost a US Senate seat that he held in his home state by a landslide.
Like George Allen, like Rick Santorum, the number one rule of elections is STOP NOMINATING LOSERS.
Nothing personal, just business.

For all his well-documented flaws, that is exactly why Chris Christie has so much traction as a prospective nominee (even though I don't think he has any interest in a presidential run).
Everything about the guy just comes across as a winner who doesn't give a damn about what people think about him. You'll never see him stumbling around trying to explain some idiotic decision he made in the past. Not because he never makes idiotic decisions, mind you ... but because he never feels a need to justify himself to anyone.

I am going out on a limb here but I suspect.... oh never mind.
Anyway, did you know that it would take Ronald Reagan three tries over 12 years to attain the Republican presidential nomination? source: Heritage Foundation #LittleKnownFacts
