Most of us are still vacationing or returning those odd Christmas gifts but McCain and Romney have left the Christmas spirit behind. The reason? McCain can vault into a commanding position in the race by winning NH and Romney by his own admission must win both NH and Iowa. Romney now has editorial opinion (from the Boston Globe and Herald to the Union Leader) clearly arrayed against him and is fighting back, contending the Concord Monitor is just a liberal rag out to get him. McCain folks are happy to point out that Romney did seek their endorsement and more conservative papers have also come out in favor of their man McCain but the “anybody but” editorial stung hard. Meanwhile Rudy spends several days in Florida, banking that Huckabee, McCain and Romney will rough each other up and his Florida-February 5 strategy won’t look so silly a month from now. His medical clean bill of health he hopes will put to rest the media chatter and allow him to focus on the issues which are his strong suit– terrorism and the economy.
