For those Republicans happy that Romney prevailed last night, I would suggest they consider who else is happy, and whether or not that is a good thing.
My own position is unchanged: I agree with John Pitney, writing in National Review Online this morning, that ". . .Romney would lose to either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama by the widest margins of any major Republican candidate."
It's spilt milk now, though. Romney has kept himself alive for at least one more spin of the wheel. The biggest immediate term loser might be Fred Thompson. . .because Romney is now a more interesting alternative to McCain than Thompson.
