35. This has been expected for more than a week now.

Several months ago I thought Mitt Romney would get the Republican presidential candidate nod. I'm not so sure anymore.

Fox News, read Rupert Murdoch, is backing Newt Gingrich all the way. Most of the other conservative media, Rush, Glenn Back, Mike Savage, and more, seem to still be backing Mitt.

For those who are keeping score, this makes about half a dozen 'front runners' the Republicans have had since the beginning of summer.

Mitt, Michelle Bachmann, Rick Perry, Cain and now Newt. Sarah Palin was supposed to make a big splash by entering the race sometime in the early fall. However, she nodded out by saying she thought by being a political pundit, having her shows on both Fox and TLC, she was more effective than being President of the United States. I think the country breathed a huge collective sigh of relief for that decision. Although she could just 'change her mind' if Newt does not pan out and all his 'baggage' does not hurt him in the early Republican primaries.

So far though Obama has been the winner of all but the last Republican debate. I think Mitt would be Obama's most difficult opposition for president. On the other hand, if Newt does get in, maybe the prediction that the Earth will be destroyed in 2012 might just come true.
