It's Down to Two

The Manchester [now New Hampshire] Union's strong endorsement of Newt Gingrich for president probably means little as far as the New Hampshire primary goes.  And if the past is any indicator, it is neutral in the effect it has for the eventually GOP nominee.  But what it did do was solidify what seems to have been taking place these last couple of weeks; that Newt Gingrich is the main challenger to Mitt Romney. This has always been a race that almost all pundits have said would boil down to Mitt Romney vs the anti Mitt candidate. That candidate has solidified his standing.

It's now Newt vs. Mitt.     Let the games begin.

Most of the time debates are one small determination in the final choice of the party.  This time, I think, the debates have been crucial in bringing out the strengths and weaknesses of all the candidates and have been enormously helpful in whittling down the field to the top candidates who can take on and defeat president Barack Obama.  It is obvious to me the field has narrowed to the two most capable candidates, Romney and Gingrich.  Either of these men can and will defeat Obama and be the next president of the United States. I predict that confidently now.  I will be happy with either man and whoever wins the nomination, I will give them my total support.

But in a couple of weeks, after a couple of more debates, I will make a choice.  I will finally give you the one who I am going to noot for; oops, I mean, root for.
