Mitt Romney’s inability to put Rick Santorum away is the story for the rest of March and into April. Spoke McKay Coppins, Buzzfeed, in Boston with the Romney campaign, and he pointed to the lack of a Plan B if Santorum wins Ohio. The results show that Romney will win Ohio late, and will have the lion share of delegates after March 6.

What is it good for? Rick Santorum wants the VPOTUS? Am told that Romney is not offering Santorum any prize.

POTUS Obama press conference was artful — emphasizing three foreign policy questions to begin his performance. The price of gasoline is still on the ticket. Will $5.00 a gallon on Memorial Day determine the election for November? Unknown.

Meantime, Santorum hangs around into May, into June, reminding the GOP that Mitt Romney is not much of a Republican anything. Spoke to Lara Brown, Villanova, who reminds me that the general election will be very, very close, because Romney does well with women and Independents. Shrug.

This will likely be the last presidential election where I can support or oppose someone who is older than I am. Romney is too senior to be an eight-year president with any vigor. Do we need a caretaker into the 2020s?
