It ain’t over until the fat lady sings so the saying goes; as far as Mitt Romney is concerned she has made her appearance and the presidential race is all over.
Yesterday Newt Gingrich laid off 135 campaign workers and said he is scaling back his campaign, and Rick Santorum has finally figured his stand on birth control ain’t gonna hack it with women has stated he wold take the No. 2 spot on the party ticket in the fall-ain’t gonna happen, the fat lady ain’t singing for him.
These events just about sew up the nomination for Romney as the Republican presidential nominee. Newt and Rick just want to stay around with their delegates just in cast a surprise candidate emerges at the GOP convention; then they can bargain for a position in the new administration.
