Letter to the Editor

A lot of columnists have been comparing the Romney vs. Gingrich primary battle to the 2008 primary battle between Obama and Clinton. I don’t think they are similar.

In 2008 the Democrats had two strong candidates that they liked. People who wanted Hillary to win liked Obama too. People who liked Obama also liked Hillary. Both candidates were very popular. In contrast Republicans dislike both leading candidates. It’s a battle between those who can’t stand Romney more vs. those who can’t stand Newt more. Republican have to choose between the guy who lost to the guy who lost to Obama vs. the guy who is going to make the third lady into the first lady. I don’t see the Republicans coming together behind any candidate this year.
