    ...and where's Mitt Romney? It just doesn't seem to be a complete story without talking about the frontrunner.
    But it is getting exciting knowing how close we are to putting the Federal Government back in the hands of responsible adults. The Obama Administration will have been an interesting and historically but otherwise forgettable diversion for the country.
