Romney has bowed out!

CNN is reporting that Mitt Romney will suspend his campaign for the Republican nomination.

Where does that leave us here, in Utah? If Obama can pull off the nomination -- I think we may see a blue state come November (at least more than it has been in 4 decades). If Hillary wins the nomination, then a wacky third party candidate may stand to make a real solid showing here in Utah.

I have to find out more about Obama, but he seems to be an excellent individual. I guess I really have to see if I can support whatever his agenda may be as President, but given the red alternative for President this time around it may not be that difficult.

I'm with you. With Romney gone the choice is easy if Obama is the nominee. If Clinton is the nominee I'll be tearing my hair out trying to cast my vote.

No two candidates are farther apart ideologically than Romney and Obama. Romney is the most conservative and Obama is the most liberal. I don't see how people could make this switch.

But McCain and the Dems are very far apart ideologically. If I'm voting for a Democrat, I'd rather vote for a Democrat rather than a Democrat in an elephant suit.
