I thought Virginia was referring to Paul and Ringo.

Isn't it cute how the Tea Party manifesto was the law of the land for the GOP until they realized they could never get one of their own elected?

Christie's pollsters surely came up with questions important to conservatives that the gov would have trouble with. He was not going to be a serious contender anyway. The race is far from being a two man contest though. Cain is rising (get it, raising Cain?) and Newt ain't done yet either.

Obviously the OP has a problem counting. There are more than two candidates running for the nomination.

This. Kinda. Iowa is notoriously unpredictable as events go. There's still time for the down ticket folks to make up ground in Iowa and surprise folks. A Cain or Newt of even Bachmann victory there could upset the whole apple cart.

The real problem though is a money problem. It's looking that there will be 5 primaries by the end of January, effectively ending the nomination process by Feb 1. It is possible there'll still be some fighting, but by Feb 1 it'll be at most a two man race, and most likely it'll be over.

That many races in such a short time means the winner will be the guy able to set up a network of supporters across multiple states, funding election activities nearly simultaneously. So it'll be rough for the candidates without deep pockets at this point. That means even if the dark horse candidates make a strong showing in Iowa, following up that strong showing will be VERY hard without a prior network in place in the next few states. That'll be tough for Newt as he's cash strapped. Cain might be able to manage that. Bachmann might with the help from the Koch brothers as long as they're still in her camp.

Hmm.... did some checking.

Right now Cain's website has links to offices in Iowa, New Hampshire, and Florida. No mention of Nevada or South Carolina.

Bachmann's site links to campaigns in all five states, so she could be capitalize on an Iowa victory.

ditto Newt.

Yeah, I'd say the race is still open.

And now the Republicans who pined for the blunt-talking governor to enter the presidential race are stuck with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Gov. Rick Perry.
State of the race without Christie – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

So, who's it gonna be GOP? The RINO Mitt, or the Illegal Alien supporting Perry?
Somewhere in the GOP their must exist a candidate with the intelligence, experience, temperament, and independence to be acceptable to the American people, and able to secure the nomination.

Because the R Party is so fractured, any person with those character traits is not acceptable to a majority of the R party; each faction expects - nay, demands - purity on the issue most important to them. The dominate force in the GOP are the extremists, yet even though they all live on the fringe they can't agree on much. The only unifying force is Obama and their emotional need for him to be a one term president.
