McCain wins New Hampshire.
Brokered convention anyone?
This is amazing stuff. But perhaps it isn’t surprising. McCain is being rewarded for being true to his word – he didn’t back off his idea for the surge in Iraq, he didn’t back off an illegal immigration package that would allow “illegal Americans” to become “legal Americans.”
What a massive, massive repudiation of Mitt Romney. Romney is governor of the neighboring state of Massachusetts. He spent massive amounts of money and he has lost.
It is very hard to see how Romney recovers.
However, Romney has something that no other candidate has – a personal fortune. He can stay in this race for a very long time.
So now it is McCain and Huckabee leading the GOP race.
