In true Flipper Fashion he assured his supporters at the end of the night last Tuesday that they were going to take the campaign all the way to the convention! Yee Haw!
What are the odds that he'll flip on this and decide to campaign again? Not that anyone would care...
John McCain effectively sealed the Republican presidential nomination on Thursday as chief rival Mitt Romney suspended his faltering presidential campaign. "I must now stand aside, for our party and our country," Romney prepared to tell conservatives.
"If I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention, I would forestall the launch of a national campaign and make it more likely that Senator Clinton or Obama would win. And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign, be a part of aiding a surrender to terror," Romney will say at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington.
"This is not an easy decision for me. I hate to lose. My family, my friends and our supporters... many of you right here in this room... have given a great deal to get me where I have a shot at becoming President. If this were only about me, I would go on. But I entered this race because I love America, and because I love America."
So will it be a McCain/Guiliani ticket or a McCain/Huckabee ticket?
And doesn't this stand to increase the odds of a third party bid? Romney was, in my estimation, the last Republican candidate who had a chance to beat either Clinton or Obama. With Romney out of the race, Michael Bloomberg should start charging in...
Update: So far.. he hasn't changed his mind.
Get this clown off the stage, he's lied enough to the American people. Go Home, Mitt, you've failed.
