McCain in big Florida Win

Senator John McCain tonight won the Florida primary, giving himself a strong boost before Super Tuesday and in all likelihood winnowing this to a two man race between himself and Mitt Romney. With 74% of precincts reporting the numbers look like this:

McCain 36%

Romney 31%

Guiliani 15%

Huckabee 13%

Paul 3%

Thompson 1%

Rudy Guiliani has managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory with a strategy that was ill-advised right from the start. His discomfort on the campaign trail was obvious, and he is now finished. Withdrawal will come shortly. John McCain will now have to stand in against the final assault that is coming, as the strong anti-McCain forces will now unite behind Romney as the last chance to stop a McCain nomination. The attacks are coming from Pat Buchanan, (whose sister Bay Buchanan holds a paid position with Romney) George Will, and the usual strong currents of excess wind from Rush Limbaugh. Should be quite a bloodletting before the nominee is chosen.

    As a conservative there is no difference between John and Hillery.

    My choice this year will be 0
