    I count 6.

    Although I'm not sure Gravel knows he's still running and unless all of Romney's delegates go to Paul, he's just there to make noise.

    Although with Romney out, you can probably discount Huckabee if the rumors of McCain supporters backing him to block Romney is true. Romney's exit will probably help McCain more than Huckabee pretty much locking it for McCain with just some formalities left to make it official.

    It is McCain's race to lose now. Unless he implodes his campaign he will get the nomination.

    God help us if he implodes...

    Although I admit Huckabee would probably be easier to beat in the general, if the Dems manage to snatch defeat from the arms of victory I'd rather have McCain...

    I'm disappointed that he is suspending (he is not withdrawing) now. I think Not-So-Super Tuesday might have gone well for him.

    The biggest struggle within the GOP over the last several years has been getting back to fiscal conservancy. I planned on handing my primary vote to Mitt, trying to make a statement that McCain (really the inevitable candidate with Huckabee's campaign splitting the socials away from the true fiscals) needs to bring some fiscal strength to his VP nomination to earn my November vote.

    Although, suspending today may be late enough that a fair number of folks will not notice before Tuesday. I think I will join them.

    His campaign ran out of money so he spent $35,000,000 of his own money
    LOL
    like john Edwards said, its an election not an auction

    Except that most of the votes that Huckabee have been getting were taking them away from Romney, not McCain. I expect that Romney supporters will flock to Huckabee, because most of the GOP is scared to deat of McCain. Considering many pundits are saying that if you think Cheney is scary, you've never seen McCain.

    How is McCain scary? Do they feel threatened by him because he is more center then right wing?

    I don't know. They just claim that he is worse than "Darth" Cheney. One GOP pundit was crying on FNC trying to get people to vote for Romney instead of McCain.

    No joke. Our local news is basically: "How do you feel today after hearing the news?"

    And it's: "I don't know *sob*"

    Maybe a little bit of an exaggeration...

    Yeah, in some small way, it's nice to see you can't buy the election.

    You have to use other under-handed schemes instead ;)

    As TEG points out, he is the former Gov. of MA, not UT. So wouldn't you think MI and MA are upset?

    And what does Utah being Mormon country have to do with it? Was Romney running on a Mormon-theocracy platform that I missed discussion of?

    I can care less about Romney because what's going to happen to the Flip Romney Flip Squad?! The mascot will be out of a job!

    Well said. The only one that's seriously been going on about their faith is Huckabee as far as I can see.

    Well, apart from a few mentions on the Dem side.....;)

    And that will be his downfall in the general election if he ever gets that far.

    It's kinda sad because he would have made a good President. Hopefully he'll become McCain's VP candidate.

    Really? Why do you think that? Here's a man who did everything he could to keep gays from obtaining equal marriage rights and made criminals out of folks who couldn't afford health insurance in Maassachusetts. He also is in favor of the Iraq war. How is any of this good?
