    Nobody won both Iowa and New Hampshire since 1976. The momentum is with Mitt Romney. Ron Paul hasn't performed badly on monetary issues, and the Federal Reserve. But that's far from being a palatable candidate for US president as a whole. And the candidacies of Huntsman, Gingrich and Santorum have not really picked up as to challenge Romney. He is a friend of israel, and someone who believes in US might and ilitary superiority, not in the wishful thinking that retreat and political correctness changes something. -It doesn't, in our world-. An involved USA in world affairs is good news for Israel, for Palestine, for the Arab world, for freedom; and bad news for Iran, Jihadism, Hezballah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Assad, if he's still in power a year from now. Obama has a formidable challenger, and one who won't likely be sidelined with great speeches. Romney is a good speaker too, although not a disciple of Martin Luther King's rhetoric, like Obama. I see Obama will have a very hard time to be re-elected, if at all.
