Iowa Caucuses: Romney and Santorum

Mitt Romney, former Massachusetts governor, won the Iowa Caucuses last night but only by a margin of eight votes. The big news is that Rick Santorum, former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania, surged late and finished virtually tied with the front-runner.

Former Texas Congressman Ron Paul came in third, followed for former Georgia Congressman Newt Gingrinch and Texas Governor Rick Perry. Afterward, Perry headed back to Texas, his campaign apparently over.

It will now be interesting to see what happens with Santorum. He is the more conservative family-values candidate against Romney, the establishment Eastern money candidate. I see no way either one can beat President Obama unless the latter really does something stupid. Santorum is too far right to win a general election, and Romney cannot motivate the conservative base of the Republican Party.

I do think Romney will get the nomination because of his money, but we shall see.

That’s my prediction now. We’ll see what happens.
