Charles, thanks for the post below — great job!
Also, The Fix has winners and losers from CPAC, and he said Gov. Romney was a winner:
Mitt Romney: For Romney, the nominal frontrunner in the 2012 nomination fight, his goal with his CPAC speech was to do no harm. He did far better than that with a very well-received speech and a strong second place finish in the straw poll. If any of the top tier candidates strengthened their hand at CPAC, it was Romney.
