At the risk of minimizing the significance of Mitt Romney’s decisive victory tonight in Florida, let us keep in mind he has a grand total of 87 delegates.
Let us avoid the temptation to fit Mitt with a crown. In the space of four weeks, Romney won and then lost Iowa, won New Hampshire decisively only to be squashed in South Carolina before tonight’s Sunshine State triumph.
He still needs to earn 1,057 delegates to earn the Republican nomination. Nearly half of those delegates are up for grabs on Super Tuesday on March 6th. If the past 28 days have been eventful, Lord only knows what is in store for the next 35 days.
Folks, we have a long, long way to go before this is all said and done.
