I can’t keep knocking Hewitt for being a bit overly enthusiastic about being, ultimately, right. If some of us had seen the lay of the land as well as Hewitt and supported Romney as the best realistic consensus conservative candidate, we might not be in the position we’re in now.
Why do I say premature?
John Ellis has the shortest, best take of what has happened and what might happen still. The only thing missing from the Ellis analysis is the possibility –however large or small– that GOP voters react like Democratic voters did in New Hampshire to the MSM telling them their race was over. Conservative voters especially are very tuned into the race and to the effect of the split in the conservative vote. Huck might not be quitting, but the decision is up to his supporters whether to hand the GOP nomination to John McCain.
