      Some of those crazies had surrogates parachute in and drag them over the finish line, that's what happened with O'Donnell and Miller and also Angle.  Buck was different because he really wasn't so different from Jane Norton in stature, and he really wasn't quite as crazy as those others.

      Cain isn't running a real campaign.  And the only way surrogates will parachute in for him is if we get past Thanksgiving and it looks like Perry isn't recovering at all and really is doomed, and Cain is still polling OK or even well.  At that point, Club for Growth and teabagger groups might jump in with ads and other help.

      But I think more realistically, those Cain voters eventually move back to Perry, who is running a real campaign with real money.

        I still think Perry will win the campaign. Palin just opted out, and I think her supporters will end up supporting Perry. The moment Gingrich and Cain drop out, their support goes to Perry. It all moves to Perry...

          That all is qualified by his performance tonight. If he has another bad debate, my finger in the wind says that Romney will win.

            Perry is struggling again, no big affirmative gaffe, but just looking weak, while Romney looks strong.

            But I've decided Perry just isn't a good debater.  He can't think on his feet well.  That's because he's neither bright nor well-spoken.

            But he still has a path to victory as long as the money is still rolling in and he has a good message and media strategy, and good field in Iowa and SC.

            No one left is dropping out before Iowa, and Perry has to win there with a divided field.  If Romney wins Iowa, game over.

            What will be amazing is if the sorry asses of Perry, Cain, Bachmann, Santorum, and Gingrich divide the right and let Romney coast.
