Yet again, the day-after story following a big contest weakens Romney's win and bolsters Santorum.  Or does it?Yesterday we learned that Rick Santorum was awarded exactly half of Michigan's 30 delegates - the other half going to Mitt Romney.  The Santorum camp says the fact Romney was unable to get an edge on delegates in his own home state only bolsters Santorum's candidacy headed into Super Tuesday.  But others say a win is a win, and no one is going so far as to say Michigan was a tie. read more

Hobbling to a victory?

Mitt Romney pulls it off - putting a pretty tight lid on talks of a brokered convention and a last-minute entry into the GOP field.  Indeed, he's a lot closer to the nomination today, but it's unclear how long until he can unequivocally claim to be the GOP's man against President Obama.  In the next few days, expect Newt Gingrich to get back into the headlines and give Romney a run for his money.  Rick Santorum, meanwhile, is a wildcard whose role on Super Tuesday is hard to tell.  But he's not going anywhere and still a force to be reckoned with. read more
