A Day of Reckoning for the GOP: Live-Blogging Super Tuesday

If you’re interested, we’re live-blogging Super Tuesday over at my place, with our post updated frequently as we follow the returns coming in and try to make a bit of sense of this senseless Republican race.

My short take:

Super Tuesday 2012 is Romney Day. I firmly predict that he will win Ohio and do well enough across the board to wrap up the nomination — well, all but wrap it up. He won’t have the delegates to declare victory — that won’t come for some time yet — but he’ll continue pulling away from Santorum and the other two also-rans, Gingrich and Paul, something he started doing with his big wins in Michigan and Arizona last week, and what we’ll witness tonight, in his “victory” speech, is the confidence of the winner.

Even with losses to Santorum in Tennessee and Oklahoma, it’s Romney’s race to lose.

But… what if Santorum somehow pulls it out in Ohio?
