I think Noam Scheiber's analysis of how whoever wins in South Carolina, Mitt Romney has the advantage is pretty shrewd. I would only add to what Noam says that Romney's already leading in delegates, and since he's going to pick up even more in Nevada that will further strengthen his position. The fact that The Washington Post can make reference to Romney having a "delegate strategy" strikes me as telling. At the end of the day, you need delegates to win. A strategy to win delegates seems like a smart strategy.
