A Two-way Race?

So far, by current count, Romney has emerged from Super Tuesday with Massachusetts and Utah, with Huckabee taking much of the South and McCain taking just about everything else.  (The results from the Western states, including California, the big prize, aren’t in yet, so maybe Romney may do better once all the votes are counted.)But consider the possibility:  What if the Republican nomination does become a two-man race, and the two men are McCain and Huckabee?   Since Huckabee is more conservative than McCain on the issues that McCain is despised for and since Huckabee does not have the baggage of personal animosity that McCain does, do you think movement conservatives would rally to him as their last chance to stop McCain?  Somehow I don’t think so. . . .

  • (Seems you wrote this before Feb. 6) Romney may not have broken out in terms of states won on Super Tuesday, but he still leads Huckabee by a sizable margin of delegates (maybe 100, depending on who’s counting).

    And Limbaugh (subject of your other post) already came down just as hard on Huckabee as he did McCain. Only Romney will do for the chattering class.

  • I know that. But I was speculating whether Limbaugh, et al., hate McCain so much that they would rally behind Huckabee. But I agree that the chattering class scorns him.
