An interesting twist in the Republican presidential race today...Mitt Romney endorses John McCain.
On one level, this can be seen as Romney as Conservative and therefore an important endorsement because of Romney's solid conservative record; Romney's decision could signal that McCain is making in-roads with the conservative base of the GOP.
On another level, this could be viewed as Romney as Opportunist and therefore an endorsement designed to increase Romney's chances to be McCain's runningmate.
Either way, let's watch how the media dissect this announcement. Romney's decision also will put pressure on Mike Huckabee to abandon his (not almost impossible) efforts to secure enough delegates to be the GOP nominee. Of course, considering the enmity between Romney and Huckabee, I doubt that anything Romney suggests will be acted upon by Huckabee.
