Re: Romney's N.O. Victory is Not a Good Sign

Ron, I think you might be reading a little bit much into Mitt Romney's one vote straw poll victory.

You might want to check out Ben Smith and Jonathan Martin's piece at

It is worth remembering that Romney handily won the Iowa straw poll in August 2007. Fat lot of good it did him the following January against Mike Huckabee.

Now, I am not discounting Romney. He could end up as the nominee. I'm just making the point we are a very long way from the 2012 Iowa Caucuses. If a week in politics is a lifetime then 20 months is an eternity.

Romney has not wrested the GOP nomination. At this point, the only thing Romney has grasped is straws.
