Santorum beats Romney, so ...

Well, we all know, of course, that President Barack Obama is running for a second term for the Democrats. That's alarming to many Americans.

But who's the option?

Some enthusiastically (and some with alarm) expect Mitt Romney to be the eventual Republican nominee to challenge Obama.

But last Saturday in the Republican presidential primary in Louisiana, former Gov. Romney came in second. The winner in Louisiana's Republican primary was Rick Santorum.

So do we still have a horse race to choose the eventual Republican presidential candidate? On April 3, voters in Wisconsin, Maryland and the District of Columbia will vote in Republican presidential primaries.

Are you encouraged about the prospects of either Romney or Santorum for the Republicans?

Is Obama encouraged by the prospects of facing either one of them?

Our November presidential election will be very important -- and the choice of our president for the next four years surely will have tremendous effects on all Americans.
