No Southern Love for Mitt, But Huge Night for Santorum

It almost sounds like repeat lyrics of a Top 40 song that Mitt Romney hates.

Romney has momentum -- a chance to finally beat expectations only to fall short in the end -- and never closes the deal.

The Week From Hell for Mitt Romney

Let's put aside the obvious and historical tidbits.


Some night. Obama sings Al Green, Newt flips script on "open marriage."

It was some night Thursday night, hundreds of miles apart.  The President picked up from his Inaugural "slow dance" with the first lady........while in Charleston, Newt actually did a decent job of flipping the "open marriage" story 48 hours before residents of South Carolina vote.
