Key Contests Today in Mississippi and Alabama

We don't know if today will make the race any clearer, or cause one or more of the candidates to withdraw from the Grand Oil Party race for president.  But today, Republican voters vote in primaries in American Samoa, Hawai'i, Mississippi and Alabama.  

If Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul do not win today but stay in the race, supporters of Rick Santorum will be upset.  They could be the only reason Santorum hasn't won majorities in recent states and the two men keeping Santorum from a clear shot at the nomination.  If Mitt Romney wins one or both, he will continue on the road to the nomination.  Romney looks better in a hypothetical race against President Obama, but all polls show that he too would lose.

We'll have results tonight.
