Rick Santorum could get a Newt endorsement if Gingrich drops out

  • whoa! According to Rick Santorum-associated officials in South Carolina, if Newt Gingrich drops out of the race anytime soon, he would likely endorse the former Pennsylvania senator’s (and longtime fan’s) campaign.
  • however … Even though Newt is totally looking like a dog in New Hampshire, don’t look for him to drop out anytime soon — he’s polling relatively decently in the Palmetto State, though he polled better about a month ago. source

It is time to acknowledge this failure and adopt a more effective course for the federal role in education. Policymakers must abandon their faith-based embrace of test-and-punish strategies and, instead, pursue proven alternatives to guide and support the nation’s neediest schools and students.
A policy assessment written by Lisa Guisbond, Monty Neill and Bob Schaeffer • Suggesting that No Child Left Behind, the Bush-era education law passed under bipartisan circumstances, should go the way of the dodo. The policy, now seen as an example of ineffective government overreach by many, celebrates its 10th birthday today, and politicians who once supported the law — including Rick Santorum, who voted for it and tried to push an intelligent design amendment into the bill — no longer do. Guisbond, Neill and Schaeffer’s report, which suggests revisiting the law based on the lessons learned from the past decade, is available to read over heresource (viafollow)

A member of my cabinet was gay.
Mitt Romney • Validating his gay-rights record. Rick Santorum got the question, too, in which he claimed that, if his son was gay, he’d love him just as much as he did the second before he said it.

Breaking News of the Day: In one of the closest candidate-selection races in US history, Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney switched places several times during the night, but a down-to-the-wire photo finish put the former Governor of Massachusetts ahead by a virtual-tie margin of 8 votes in Iowa’s first-in-the-nation caucus.
To put that in perspective, over 122,000 people turned out to vote.
Among the other candidates, Ron Paul’s all-in campaign landed him in third place ahead of Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, and Michele Bachmann, respectively. John Huntsman, who is putting all his eggs in New Hampshire, was absent from the caucuses, and subsequently came in last.
Though none of the candidates behind Santorum and Romney officially stepped down, Perry said he would be returning to Texas to reassess his campaign, and Michele Bachmann’s campaign manager Keith Nahigian told the AP his boss may quit.
In other news, Marcus Bachmann spent yesterday buying doggie sunglasses:

Good night

We’ve got to go to sleep for the night, but the latest reporting, from CBS’s Jan Crawford, has Mitt Romney’s camp declaring victory by fourteen votes. We’ll be back in the morning.

We shocked the world last night in Iowa. We did it with a coalition of conservatives, Tea Party members, and values voters who recognized that my successful conservative record gives the GOP the best chance to defeat Barack Obama. No more sitting on the sidelines. Now is the time to act or get stuck with a bland, boring, career politician who will lose to Barack Obama.
Rick Santorum, writing in a fundraising e-mail to supporters in reaction to his Iowa Caucus showing. Clearly his tough words are a reaction to Mitt Romney. Think he’ll keep up the momentum beyond the caucus?
