Window Closing for a Graceful Santorum Exit

Rick Klein suggests Rick Santorum should strongly consider leaving the GOP presidential race before the April 24 Pennsylvania primary.

"Santorum has now gone from ex-senator who lost his last race in a landslide, to the silver medalist in a chaotic, once-crowded GOP primary. At 53, he's young enough to have a long future in the party, maybe even as a candidate again some day."

"Romney's timely exit in his race against Sen. John McCain in 2008 has been widely cited as the first step toward what's on track to be a successful bid for the nomination in 2012. For Santorum to follow a similar path, getting out on his own terms is a must. And losing on his own turf would hurt that prospect, perhaps beyond repair."
