Well then they should use laymen's terms for dummies like me. Instead of titling the article "Romney to suspend campaign," how about "Romney drops out"? FWIW, the article keeps updating itself as I speak, so maybe the title will change also.
He is out, he just retains some say as to his delegates this way. If he "dropped out" as opposed to merely "suspending his candidacy", he would lose those delegates and any influence he might have through them.
The Republican race is effectively decided. This makes the Obama/Clinton showdown in the Democratic Party all the more important for them to resolve quickly. The longer one party is unified behind one candidate, the more momentum they will have. That doesn't guarantee anything, of course, but it is a factor and it has its power.
Hopefully, a Libertarian candidate comes to light. I am sick of the two party system currently in place. Maybe Ron Paul might wake up and smell the roses and dedecate his money to an independant platform (as he has no shot as a Republican).
