It is time for Sen. Rick Santorum to drop out

Sen. Rick Santorum has no viable path to victory and brings no new issues or ideas to the table.  He no longer serves a purpose, or has a justification to remain in the race.

Santorum has no viable claim that he is more conservative or more electable than Gingrich.  He has no viable claim that he will be better in raising money, in organization, or would do a better job as president.  There is simply no path for him.  Further — despite winning Iowa, Santorum lost badly in NH and SC, and has no means to complete in FL.  It is time for him to leave.

The Santorum campaign probably thought, prior to SC, that it had a chance to win values voters.  SC results show that those voters went to Gingrich over Santorum, despite an all-out values attack against Gingrich.  SC should have put an end to that thinking.  There simply is no path for Santorum.

It is time for him to drop out.  Hopefully to support Gingrich. It is best for Santorum to quit while he is in a respectable position.  Now is that time.
