CNN Live: Full speed ahead to Super Tuesday

Atlanta (CNN) – Goodbye Michigan. Arizona, we hardly knew you.

The nation is now focused on Super Tuesday when 10 states – Alaska, Georgia, Idaho, Massachusetts, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia – weigh in on the race for the Republican presidential nomination.

Unlike Tuesday's primaries, which Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul skipped, all four GOP hopefuls will be competing on March 6th – just not in every state. Gingrich, Paul, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum all have their own strategies and political paths in the march to the 1,144 delegates needed to win the Republican nomination.

There are a couple of contests between now and Super Tuesday. Wednesday evening, we get the results of the Wyoming Caucuses and on Saturday Washington state Republicans hold their caucuses. The hunt for delegates continues.

We did learn some things when the dust settled in Arizona and Michigan late Tuesday night and now we watch to see if the candidates recalibrate their campaigns for next week's contests.

On the campaign trail, Gingrich spends the day in Georgia, Romney in Ohio and Santorum in Tennessee. And Ron Paul returns to his day job on Capitol Hill where he attends a hearing featuring Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. We can't imagine Paul would want to be any other place.

    Mitt Romney the Flip-Flopper may be on GOP front-runner, but he will be done for ever with Nov. Election. He will never win with Obama. Bain Capital, Vulture Capitalist, Private Equity Capitalism and Shipping Jobs to China fail this nation....true.

    Neither one of these flip-floppers are qualified to beat the President! I,m loving these "Extremists" who are "Chopping " the Republican Party? Just like chopping down a tree, "Eventually, it comes down? Santorum is a "Ludicrous Lunatic", and the rest don,t give a "Rats butt about the working class? Pretty "Clear where my vote goes, President Obama likes "Womens Rights to Health"!! 2012 Sir!

    If we get a Republican president to go with a Republican congress, we can return to those glorious Bush years when our economy went from robust to the brink of collapse. We got the Bush tax cuts, unfettered greed on Wall St, unfunded wars, and the war on the middle class was FINALLY realized for what it truly was. --- When " King George II" told us "it was a Global Economy", few realized too late just what he was saying.---- Now everything is being made in China by workers without any rights.
