Rick Perry will announce his withdrawal from the race today, before he faces more embarrassment in the South Carolina primary. The last couple of weeks have seen Perry get a little more vocal, a little less bumbling, but the damage was completely done well ahead of his dismal performance in Iowa. One of the most spectacular crash-and-burn failures I can remember.
CNN reports that Perry will endorse Gingrich, not Romney. Not surprising: a loser supporting another loser. But, combined, their poll numbers in South Carolina don't equal Romney's.
Once Gingrich quits, he'll probably endorse Santorum, but that will backfire as it becomes clearer who will be the nominee of the party -- Romney.
Obama must be pissing himself with abject fear at having to debate Romney in the general.
