Is Mitt Romney Toast?

Everybody agrees Mitt Romney's $10,000 bet to Rick Perry in Saturday night's GOP debate was a gaffe, but a split has opened up on just how hard Mitt's hit. The Daily Beast's Howard Kurtz says his campaign is too slick to be counted out yet. "If Romney can survive the opening contests, he can win a war of attrition with Gingrich, whose campaign has been a shoestring affair." But Daily Beast columnist Michael Tomasky isn't so sure. "Romney’s no longer the default choice, and he has no obvious line of attack against the man who is. I’m not sure I’d bet a dollar on Romney now, let alone ten thousand of them."
