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. . . .
A Two-way Race?
