With all of the twists, turns, and controversies in the Republican race for the 2012 nomination, it's amazing we have come to this road: Ready in Iowa, caucus goers tomorrow are about to end the pronouncements, announcements, corny catch phrases, and all of the mixture in between. Newt Gingrich surged. Herman Cain purged. Michelle Bachmann splurged.. and Ron Paul merged--as a front runner--with Mitt Romney. Rick Perry crashed and burned with his inability to remember his own talking points. And now, as the Iowa season comes to an EAAARRRLLY end (really, January 3 WE BEGIN THIS!?) Rick Santorum is getting perhaps his last shot for primary victory.. new polls show him gaining immense momentum.
Would anyone have thought Rick Santorum and Ron Paul would be the main challenges to Mitt Romney's assumption of the nomination? The establishment may let them have a victory or two in Iowa and New Hampshire. But then expect the machine to begin pumping out the ads come South Carolina, Virginia, and other big states that the Nomination in Waiting can't begin to think about losing.
It all starts tomorrow.
Power to the people.
They caucus the best of all.
