The rise before his total implosion.

There has to be an anti-Romney candidate left standing at some point. It is clear Republicans do not want to nominate Romney.

There's a couple who haven't gotten the "Not Romney" bump.

Jon Huntsman, even though his campaign is painting him as some moderate, has positions that aren't just to the right of Romney but "To the right of most conservatives" as the American Conservative magazine wrote.

Santorum has literally visited every Iowa county and practically lives in Iowa.

Ron Paul is making a steady climb in the polls, and his base is dedicated. BUT can he build on top of that?

Meanwhile, Gingrich's campaign couldn't name 40 people to be New Hampshire delegates. I think his Iowa offices just got phones installed yesterday.

Does that really sound like a campaign that can get people to go spend a cold Iowa evening, while people are still recovering from New Year's hangovers, in some church basement or school gym?
