How Novak Sees the Race II – REPUBLICAN

Robert Novak gives his opinions on how the Presidential Elections are shaping up after New Hampshire’s primary. I don’t agree with him that Romney is out of the picture if he doesn’t win Michigan; his personal funds and the spin that he has had the most consistent state contest record (the 1 gold, two silver line) will keep him in it until Super Tuesday but he needs a close second and a victory would put him back into the foreground and stead some of McCain’s momentum.

Sen. John McCain's (R-Ariz.) decisive win in New Hampshire puts him in a commanding position. If he can defeat former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) in Michigan January 15 and then beat former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee in South Carolina, he will be unbeatable. A loss for Romney in Michigan, which now looks likely, will eliminate him. The only hope to stop him is former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R), but his late-starting, big-state strategy looks like a loser.
While many conservatives and libertarians are still emotionally opposed to McCain, objective Republican strategists see him as the best shot at beating either Clinton or Obama. Democrats tend to agree. Most Republicans believe that McCain vs. Clinton is the best match that they can think of.
Romney based his New Hampshire campaign on attacking McCain's liberal immigration policy, and it failed there -- as it did in Iowa. There is a growing body of evidence that making immigration the No. 1 issue is a political mistake
