Super Tuesday

Nope sorry, there isn't a holiday that is actually going to bring us the perfect Republican candidate for president.  Super Tuesday is the day where ten different states have their contests that will bring more delegates than all the other contests combined.  This day is pretty much and make or break day for most candidates, and normally is the day that candidates know whether or not they will have the nomination.  Currently that isn't the case.  It's too close to call.  Most believe that Romney will edge out the Super Tuesday contest, and be the victor, because most states have gone to proportional voting as opposed to the "winner take all" style of the past, there isn't going to be the big jump in delegate numbers that other candidate would have seen on Super Tuesday.  While I pray that anyone but Santorum or Gingrich gets the Republican nomination, it is still too close to call.  I hope though this day will narrow things down, and make it a race that is easier to digest.  I have no faith that the Republican party can find a candidate that will be able to rally enough Republicans to beat the president.  Obama is a very strong force and when he goes into full campaign mode we will see him pull no punches.  I will be interested to see what happens this summer, and especially after the convention.
