Senator McCain, Come to the Old Dominion !

Well, now that Romney's out, finally the two leading candidates will be respectful and courteous to one another - even if sometimes their supporters won't.

Now it must be said that after losing California in almost every county and congressional district after spending millions of dollars of his own money, Romney really had no way of winning this thing.

But what he has still managed to do is give us the possibility of a brokered convention. And this may be even more likely now that he's officially out of the race.

The news media are still underestimating Huckabee and his supporters, even after all this time. No, there is no way for Huckabee to catch up with McCain. But this thing still has the possibility of being extended a few months if not all the way to the convention in the Fall.

How does Huckabee stay in the game? For one thing, he's very likely to win the caucus in Kansas this Saturday.

On Tuesday we have primaries in Maryland, D.C. and Virginia. Huckabee is very competitive here in Virginia. The last thing McCain needs now is the idea that he is inevitable, thus leading his supporters to stay home on primary day.

If Huckabee wins Virginia, he'll be competitive in Texas and Ohio. That means this thing could go on until Pennsylvania in late April.

McCain needs to officially wrap this nomination up as soon as possible.

The best way for him to do that is to stay on the campaign trail.

So Senator McCain, Virginia will be honored to have you with us!

THERE IS NO WAY THIS SHOULD CONTINUE FOR THE NEXT FEW MONTHS? THE MERE IDEA IT WOULD GO UNTIL THE ELECTION? MAKES ME SICK TO THE POINT OF CAUSING MYSELF CANCER OR PRAYING FOR A HOT ONE BETWEEN THE EYES IN A CROSSFIRE. DISGUSTING, DEPLORABLE AND IN THE END? NOBODY WINS AND AT LEAST ONE PERSON I KNOW LOSES THE CHANCE AT TRUST AND THE ABILITY TO FEEL SAFE FOR THE DURATION.
