And then there were four.
Newt’s greatest strength has been his debate performances. Mitt is gonna be a tough sell in South Carolina, Ron Paul is there for comedy relief and if Rick Santorum was any stiffer they would put a condom on him.
What to watch for: How will Newt deal with questions about his ex-wife? He knows it’s coming. My guess is he’ll give a non-answer and scold the moderator for going there. His goal tonight is to knock out Santorum. If Newt is the only not-Romney left he wins (and we lose).
The fun (such as it is) will start at 5pm left coast time (8pm Atlantic) on CNN. The South Carolina primary is Saturday.
This is an open thread.
