    Not sure how significant this is or not, but one of his hurdles has been getting past the conservative base, so perhaps this is a turning point --- especially if he wins Maine today as well.

    Surprising that Ron Paul didn't win this... he seems to usually win them. Also indicative that the base I think is putting wanting to win above a purist approach to ideology... and working towards a more fiscally conservative congress that would balance out a President Romney?
