In this week’s issue of TIME Magazine (available to subscribers here), Mark Halperin lays out the post-Florida world plus the skinny on Palin, Christie, Daniels, Ann Romney and more.
Halperin: “If Mitt Romney wins, he moves back into a commanding position; if Newt Gingrich triumphs, he will be hard to stop anytime soon . . . A Florida victory by the former Speaker would propel Establishment Republicans from nervous to frantic, leaving them three choices: rally to Romney, give him more time to prove himself or try (yet again) to get a white knight into the contest . . . GOP congressional leaders blanch at the thought of Gingrich at the top of their ticket but aren’t planning to try to rescue Romney anytime soon . . .”
