Newt's Progress Not Unstoppable

While moderate to conservative columnists rake Gingrich as being temperamentally unfit to hold the presidency, or as having served as an unapologetic mouthpiece for financial plunderers, Rhodes Cook of University of Virginia Center for Politics CRYSTAL BALL website tells us it's not to late for the GOP to find a different antidote--oops, my bad, I meant 'alternative'--to Romney.

Cook argues that," the elongated layout of the nominating calendar this time provides the opportunity for a late-starting candidate to emerge. Should Mitt Romney stumble badly in the January events in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida, another establishment Republican could enter the race in early February and still compete directly in states with at least 1,200 of the 2,282 or so GOP delegates. Many of them will be up for grabs after April 1 when statewide winner-take-all is possible."
