And Now Romney Drops Out

WASHINGTON (AP) - John McCain effectively sealed the Republican presidential nomination on Thursday as chief rival Mitt Romney suspended his faltering presidential campaign.

Lovingly lifted from al-Reuters.

"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.

I'm watching the CPAC speeches on C-SPAN. Romney did effectively drop out of the presidential race, leaving only McCain and Governor Huckabee.

Ye Gads.

I have been brain-numb since Super-Tuesday night about the conservative/Republican vote totals, the outcome. Yep, I just heard it... Mr. Romney is bowing out, forcing an awful choice, and making conservatives to redefine their conservative beliefs or wave the white flag to the Democrats in November of this year.

Where is Newt Gingrich?

Ye Gads.
I am just nauseous. Ready to go to bed at noon, hoping to wake up later, to learn that this was all just a bad dream.
