Tonight’s debate in Charleston may be the most important of these umpteen million exchanges yet. Newt Gingrich is poised to potentially upset Mitt Romney in South Carolina. If he fails, Romney may begin to run out the clock. Rick Santorum has been revealed to the true winner of the Iowa caucuses. Rick Perry is out of the race. Newt’s marital problems may undo him. Ron Paul remains a persistent force in the race despite potential blowback — if you’ll pardon the phrase — over his foreign policy views.
Romney is coming off his least effective debate performance in recent memory and for the first time since Iowa, he faces the possibility of losing a GOP contest. How will he perform under this unusual pressure? Gingrich always has the ability to either dazzle or implode whenever the cameras are running.
Santorum will have to try to decide how to play the Iowa results. He’ll want to challenge the narrative that Romney has run the table so far, without reverting to his “I don’t get enough time in debates” form. Paul looked like he had overshadowed the endorsements from key GOP state senators with his bin Laden comments the other night, but he has since rebounded. With just four candidates left, can he avoid saying anything in more extended speaking time that will endanger his grip on yet another top three finish?

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
