Romney to endorse McCain.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is expected to endorse U.S. Sen. John McCain of Arizona, who was Romney's rival in the Republican race for the White House, two sources familiar with the decision told CNN Thursday.
They said Romney wants the 286 delegates he won to go to McCain, who now has 827 delegates, and is the Republican front-runner.
To clinch the Republican nomination 1,191 are needed.
An announcement is expected at 3:30 p.m. ET in Boston.
Romney dropped out of the race Feb. 7, after a poor showing on Super Tuesday. He said he pulled the plug on his Republican presidential campaign "for our party and for our country."
Continuing his campaign would have delayed the Republicans from shifting attention to the general election campaign against whichever Democrat wins the nomination of their party, he said at the time.

Romney has proven his integrity and love for this country. Please follow suit so that we can beat Obama/Clinton.
Don't let your ego, or whatever agenda keeps you in, cost us our chance, Huckabee. We need to strengthen our party before November. Too much is at stake.
Huckabee… show you care as much for the party as you say and show us a miracle… step down. Get behind and support the frontrunner like Romney. We don't have a chance if you don't.

Romney will always do the right thing for our Country. Huckabee needs to just fade away. Romney was right when he said, "it's not about me, it's about my country." when he gave up on his campaign.
McCain will prevail in November, because Americans don't want promises they want results. Hope is fine and Miracles do happen, but reality is that we are at war with an enemy that wants to destroy not only us, but western civilization. Neither Clinton nor Obama have the intestinal fortitude to confront this enemy. As a Republican I would have preferred Romney, but Mcain is fine with me too.
