Newt's Non-Concession

Said Gingrich: "It's not contradictory,
In defeat, to forego valedictory;
One may not give up now,
Having taken a vow
To have and to hold out for victory."

Mitt Romney won commandingly in the Florida Presidential primary Tuesday night, capturing 46% of the vote and all of the state's 50 delegates.  However, you wouldn't know it from second-place finisher Newt Gingrich, who, with 32% of the votes and no delegates, gave what sounded a lot like a strident victory speech.  In the glow of his primary night defeat, Gingrich pledged to supporters that, upon his inauguration, he would repeal health care reform, Dodd-Frank financial reform and the Sarbanes-Oxley corporate governance reform, as well as sign a host of executive orders including a pledge to end "antireligious bias." Thankfully, he saved lunar colonization for another day.
