Santorum had the opportunity to withdraw graciously, congratulate Mitt Romney - now his party's presumptive nominee - and call for Republican unity in working to defeat President Barack Obama in November.
Instead, Santorum blew it. His rambling 14-minute speech barely mentioned Obama or the economy. And most notably there were two words that did not cross his lips - Mitt and Romney. Graceless. Classless. Making the speech all about him, rather than his country or his party, Santorum ended up looking like the smaller man.
