Newt upsets odds with S.Carolina win

The former House Speaker threw a spanner in the Willard Mitt Romney electoral machine with a double-digit win over the former CEO of Bain Capital. Returns from 57% of the state showed Gingrich on 40 points, Romney on 27, Iowa surprise Santorum on 18 and evergreen libertarian Ron Paul on 13 points.

The eve of the Iowa caucus

Last time around our lad Willard (that's Mitt Romney to the uninformed) finished a rather distant second to Mike Huckabee, short by nearly 10%. The 'next-in-line' candidate went on to finish third in the overall nominee race with John 'call me Maverick' McCain taking on Obama and selling his soul down the river in the process. Needs must...
