After his decisive primary win in Florida, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney may start his February with an endorsement that could impress some conservatives. Instead of heading to Nevada or Maine (the next two states to vote), Mr. Romney is headed to Minnesota presumably to pick up the endorsement of tea party favorite Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minnesota).

In case there was any doubt, the results of Saturday's South Carolina primary proved there's a proxy war going on in the Republican Party.

The rumors have been swirling for months and have been denied multiple times but now it has been confirmed there was a plan by Democrats to persuade US Representative Kendrick Meek (D-Florida) to drop out of his Senate race and throw his support behind former Republican Charlie Crist. In the center of this desperate attempt to stave off the election of Republican Marco Rubio is former President Bill Clinton, the same bagman who offered an Obama administration job to Representative Joe Sestak (D-Pennsylvania) if he would drop out of his primary race against Senator Arlen Specter (D-Pennsylvania).
