Who Should Drop Out? Rick, Newt or Mitt?

Last week, Laura Ingraham asked Newt Gingrich if he could foresee putting his weight behind Santorum, to create a mass of conservatives to get behind the "notRomney." But since Gingrich took South Carolina, the tables have turned in some circles.

Then came the demonization. … [Read more...]
