It's a dangerous precedent to suggest it's better to have contests where fewer states and fewer voters matter. In a representative democracy grounded in the values of one-person, one-vote, we should be wary of giving up on the value of giving all voters a chance to make a difference.
Mitt is compelling and will be the nominee, but the lesson he should learn is that there is no replacement for getting personal with a voter. He will need to know that going into a general election.
Since the middle of January I have been calling this race for Santorum. I feel like a guy out in the wilderness wearing sackcloth eating grasshoppers...
Every candidate had something they could claim as a positive on Super Tuesday. The contest for the nomination isn't over -- which is good news for voters in remaining states wanting to help pick their party's nominee.
With Super Tuesday showing no clear winner yet in the Republican primaries, God has signaled that he may throw his hat in the ring for the nomination ...
As a jaded university student, a disenchanted Obama supporter and an outspoken critic of the merciless slaughtering of innocents, I've found myself in an electoral dilemma as of late. That is, I want to like Ron Paul, I really do.
American liberalism is dead. Long live American liberalism -- the proper kind.
No matter how all the states on Tuesday finish in voting preference, it will be readily apparent on Wednesday morning that the delegate math does not allow any candidate other than Romney to get to 1,144, the magic number needed to secure the nomination.
Romney's failure to do the politically bold and smart move can only be interpreted to mean that he is either not bothered by Rush Limbaugh's vitriol or too fearful to say anything about it.
For all the attention now being given to the fiercely contested contest between Romney and Santorum in Ohio, Gingrich's expected win in Georgia could partially upstage them.
Republican presidential candidates' extreme comments about economics and culture have dominated headlines, but lurking in the shadows is a hawkish Cold War mentality. Gingrich, Romney and Santorum want to beef up the military and put nuclear weapons back on the table.
No Republican presidential candidate has been willing to take on the hard myths. The myths that are killing us. Here are a dirty dozen.
Elections aren't won entirely on the ground -- the national mood will obviously matter, as will the state of the economy and the effectiveness of the rival campaigns' messaging. But field organizing can make a crucial difference, particularly in tight races.
Hey, if you were in the race, wouldn't you rather be in Romney's shoes -- wouldn't you feel more viable -- rather than being in the shoes of Santorum, Newt Gingrich or Ron Paul?
