Will South Carolina Shake Up The GOP Race?


The fight for the GOP presidential nomination continues, and South Carolina will undoubtedly play a key role in securing a candidate. E.J. Dionne writes in his new column, “Romney And The South Carolina Conundrum”:

Can Mitt Romney be dislodged as the fragile but disciplined front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination? If he can, South Carolina is the best bet for the role of spoiler.

    I hope to see a Romney upset. I don’t believe the sexual harrassment thing will gain any traction as far as displacing Cain as the spoiler. People are skeptical not only of Romney, but of the old-school Republican machine as it currently exists. Romney and Perry both represent more of the same, though Romney is doing a better job of deflecting that perception. Cain is much more likely to fall down on foreign policy, defense strategy and trade policy than on the hum-drum bleatings of the usual mudslingers. It will be very interesting and America is watching with uncharacteristic enthusiasm.
