This puts Sen. John McCain in the driver's seat for the Republican nomination for president, with only Mike Huckabee as a weak challenger.
Now the fun starts: McCain has been rounded criticized by Rush, Sean and other yakkers on the right. Will they flip-flop now that Romney's gone? Will they flock to Huckabee? Will they try to try a "real conservative" to carry the right-winner banner this fall? And where will Romney's Oklahoma voters go?
For answers to these and other political questions, stay tuned.
UPDATE: From our friends at Crooks & Liars, we find this interesting bit of news:
John McCain was booed passionately by the hard line conservatives attending the CPAC convention today as he brought up his position and support for Bush’s immigration plan which is a sore spot for many there.
Suffice it to say, this is not a good sign for Republicans.
