God, Politics and Rock 'n' Roll: The Nomination Process Prepares The GOP For Battle

Excerpted from this post at God, Politics and Rock 'n' Roll

Mitt Romney headed toward the Iowa caucuses with some of the most
respected Iowa political advisers on his team, the best turn-out
operation of all the candidates, and unlimited money. He lost to Mike
Huckabee. Earlier this week, Mitt Romney scored an impressive victory
in Michigan. The long, unpredictable fight for the GOP nomination is a
positive process for the eventual GOP nominee. In Iowa, Romney simply
wasn't the right fit for the electorate that turned out for the GOP
caucuses. 60% of the attendees identified themselves as evangelical;
they voted for a fellow evangelical. In Michigan, where economic
issues rule, Romney was credible and persuasive.
