    Santorum.  If Santorum were a stock, I'd be pushing investors to buy him. (As their nominee, at least.)

    He won Iowa and will do well there again. He also won Minnesota and Missouri.  A Midwestern Super Tuesday would suit him fine.

    And the Republican Runner up always wins the next time around.  The only recent exception was Pat Buchanan, who came second in 1996 but decided to run for the Reform Party nomination in 2000.  (For the record, I don't think he would have won the nomination in 2000, but he is the ONLY exception.  Regan came 2nd in 1976, nominated in 80, beating out Bush, who was nominated in 88, after beating out Dole, who was nominated in 96.  Then Bush Jr. beat Mcain, who beat Romney, who beat...Santorum.
