It's always the lesser of two evils. OK, the lesser implies that there is a greater evil. It's clear that O wants to do more to hurt the economy. Mitt (not my first choice) will do the opposite. The lesser evil is also the better of the two. As it stands now, O or Mitt will be Pres and any other choice is impossible, so the lesser is the better - a vote for Mitt does not require total agreement, but that I realize it's O or Mitt, and Mitt is better.

Newt Gingrich finally made it formal. He's now ended his presidential race with characteristic bombast. The real news, the big surprise, was that he made it this far. And resisted dropping out for this long. The man has a real talent -- for ignoring reality.

If character really is fate, the Newt should have been done as a presidential candidate as soon as his dubious connections with Freddie Mac became common knowledge....
