Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Heh.  I'm astonished at Ron Paul's showing in the exit polls, too.  We'll see if he holds on.

Haven't seen anything about Paul. All kos has got is the Romney announcement.

I admit Paul's supporters annoy me by hogging the Guardian CiF comments. Almost any subject will be an excuse for one of his sock-puppets t ocome in and start telling us how the world would be perfect if only ron Paul were President.

Mind you, given the Guardian's British liberal (-ish) credentials it's quite pathetic the way the rightwing neocon/neoliberal axis shout down any discussion about the USA.

Yes, and I found the post-NH rally Paul held quite amusing when the crowd burst into shouts of "End the Fed!"  But, hey, I'll be glad to see him beat McCain and Huckabee.

Giuliani, by the way, is tied for last on the results page with Duncan Hunter.

How long before 9ui11iani throws in the towel ? I must admit that whenever I see a picture of him I smell sulphur and can hear jackboots marching.

As a Brit pol. once said "there is something of the night about him"

Very soon, I think.  If he loses Florida, as I think he may well, he's finished.  His campaign is out of money, to the point that he's, literally, not paying his staff -- a sure sign of weakness and lack of commitment (and a really shitty thing to do) for a guy who could easily pay their salaries with his own wealth.
