Romney Takes One for the Team

Mitt Romney is done. He's suspended his campaign for the good of the party so Republicans can focus on stopping the Democrats.

I saw his speech. One of the best speeches I've seen from a Republican in a long while. He could be an asset to John McCain if the senator can suffer the former governor campaigning for him down the road.

I haven't been a Romney supporter but it takes a man of character to consider the greater picture and not just his own ego. Obviously the hard numbers were against him, but a lot of people wanted him to continue the fight. He isn't and that's good news for the Republicans.

I suspect, if McCain wins Virginia and Maryland next Tuesday, Huckabee will step aside too. The Republicans will have several months to cool off passions and rally behind McCain before the convention.

Romney did the math. Then he clothed this inevitability in sacrificial virtue.

Thanks for playing, Mitt.

Bravo, seems to me, is an excellent phrase
