    These are party gatherings. Individual parties can do as they like. This is not like the general election.

    New Mexico's is even farther apart. I'd just never noticed before that some were that far split. I'd heard of some being a couple of weeks apart - but not months.

    I think his victory is a shame. Romney is a big government liberal and no confessing conservative should support him. He also strikes me as being somewhat arrogant. Maybe it is just a perception problem. The problem with people like Rudy, McCain, Romney, Huckabee, Thompson, Clinton, Richardson, and others is that they are part of the system that has messed everything up. That is why they are laughing at Ron Paul on ABC right now. These people have messed our government up, they are part of the problem, and when someone comes along and points his finger in their face about that they don't like it.

    I say right here, and right now, the only Republican I will vote for in '08 is Ron Paul. If he does not win the nomination, and I doubt he will, I will vote for a third party. All of those Republicans sitting on that stage tonight (w/the exception of Paul) are big government, tax and spend, part of the problem liberals. Never again will I compromise the truth and the constitution to support those kind of people. Each and everyone of them should feel great shame for what they have done to our great government.

    Go Ron Paul!!! The only true conservative in this race (on either side).

    I am surprised at the citizens of Wyoming. They are usually for the truth, free of government involvement in their lives, and quite independent.

    There is not a word of truth that passes from Romeny's lips, and he is the poster child of big government.

    Then again, isn't this where Cheney came from?

    Regardless of whom anyone likes or does not like; or prefers or does not prefer,
    as of now, these are the only "committed" and/or "binding" delegates that have been selected.

    (Iowa's votes are not yet 'finalized', in this process, all the 'hype', notwithstanding.)

    So currently the delegate slate reads:

    'Committed' delegates - Republican: - 12
    Gov. Mitt Romney --------- 8
    Sen. Fred Thompson ------ 3

    Rep. Duncan Hunter ------ 1

    'Committed' delegates --- Democrat: -- 0

    Hence, the only "official front-runner" is Gov. Mitt Romney, for the Republicans, and no one, as yet, for the Democrats, as of today.

    Obviously, those numbers, and the 'status', will change in three days, after the New Hampshire primary, with its determination of NH's 'binding' and 'committed' delegates, both in numbers and 'status', for the Democrats; and in numbers, at least, for the Republicans.

    Very true Ed we will let the facts speak for themselves.

    One question, does anyone know the number of delegates that will be going to the convention? and thus the # needed for nonimination - I assume that it is 50% +1
