Now The Fun Begins

Of course everything interesting happens on the day I'm too busy to comment. Romney's graceful departure makes the hateful things we've been hearing about him melt away, no? McCain's terrific CPAC speech (which we probably owe to the tremendous pile-on he's received from Conservative quarters) ought to do the trick.

At any rate, it's so much more pleasant when the intra-familial squabbling stops and the battle for the big ideas begins. VP choices? Grapevine is saying Gov. Tim Pawlenty.
