I still think it will come down to the establishment guy against the TPM gal.

The establishment backing anybody but Sarah - probably Mitt. The TPM backing Sarah.

Sarah says more competition is good. I think she will do best in debates. She says if she’s in it, she’ll be in it to win it. No gloves. I expect her opponents will be tasting her nightstick, and experiencing first hand why she has all those cool predator nicknames.

The credibility of his assessment took a serious hit when he stated that Huckabee is the frontrunner in terms of popularity. I do not know one Huckabee supporter...well, there are handfull of them on ROS, but other than that, I don't see many out there leading the charge for Huckamania. If he was so popular, they'd be invading sites like Hot Air to tell us how great he is. He barely out-polled Donald freakin Trump and Rick freakin Santorum in their straw poll for cryin out loud.

I would agree that Romney has an edge in organization, but I suspect his sudden slide in the polls hasn't gone unoticed by Gingrich.

He downplayed Palin. That's generally how you approach questions about the potential candidate that you fear the most. I would do the same.

Gingrich may be a sleazeball, but he is very smart as well.

Romney is a 10 in organization for 2012, everyone else is a 2. Maybe Yawnplenty a 3.

Gingrich is correct. you can't go wrong when you plan ahead.

Romney's organization will be much stronger this go round.
