With all the media attention surrounding elections it sometimes seems like they are pre-decided for us. Mitt Romney is following in Giuliani and Edward’s footsteps and giving up on becoming president in 2008. Yesterday, Romney announced, “In this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror.” Little is known as to what this has to do with his dropped bid, but perhaps it has something to do with obtaining only 286 delegates, compared to McCain’s 697, on Super Tuesday.
Romeny has now left Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul as even remote contenders for the Republican bid, although neither is likely to pull enough numbers to seriously be considered. The candidate for the Democratic Party still remains open with Obama just a few points below Clinton.
