republican presidential nomination, you can at wisconsin, md., and washington d.c. to the mitt romney, as he swept all three conte's last night. joining us now is cbs five political analyst. >> does he have it? does he have the nominee? >> no, not yet, he is more than halfway through but there is about 500 more delegates that he needs to gather. april will be a good month for him because there are still a number of states that he will do very well in including new york and connecticut and rhode island, delaware, he'll be competitive in the reason for the state of pennsylvania as well. more than 200 delegates up for grabs there. if mitt romney takes the lion's share of those it will be very difficult for him to avoid winning the nomination in the end because he will extend himself so much that rick santorum is going to have to run the table to catch up to him numerically and that will be difficult. >> it seems like bricks santorum chances are slipping away, is realistic for him to state in

the phrase? >> realistically, yes. there are many states in the south where his conservative politics will play well in north carolina and kentucky and texas. but here is the rental for rick santorum. the gop has purposely spread out the schedule here so that all of these races will be more competitive. some of the state's are a portion, not always winner-take- all. so even if he wins these places. if he's not getting every delegate is very difficult for him to make up ground on mitt romney who is also " trickling away some of those states as well. by the end of may it could be the case before we even get to california that mitt romney has a lead that is 2/1 over rick santorum or maybe even 3/1. it becomes almost impossible for rick santorum to do anything except to go to a brokered convention. i don't think the gop wants that. >> it may be early to think about this but you think that rick santorum is adamant about
6:51 am
staying in the race because he is positioning himself for maybe four years down the road or eight years down the road? >> or perhaps a serious consideration as vice-president. i think all those things are true. the one thing that rick santorum has gotten out of this is that there is still a hunkering within the republican party for someone to sort of, ... you know how the democrats re-enacted the persona of jfk by picking bill clinton in the 90's and barack obama. a charismatic leader. the republicans are searching for someone that can channel the essence of ronald reagan and rick santorum keep saying that he is that person because he has the same social conservative credentials. but what he lacks is the executive this year is as a governor and even though ronald reagan was small government and no new taxes kind of guy, he did a little bit of both as a moderate leader in terms of the government politics. rick santorum does not have those credentials and it remains to be seen if that will play this year.

perhaps it will play in four more years. >> good stuff .. thank you. time for a quick look at what is coming up later on cbs this morning with dale king joining us now live from new york with the very latest. >> live from new york and in color, thank you, did the president cross the line by warning the supreme court over health care? and senator john mccain over the controversy. what does he think the outcome will be? >> the case involving a kennedy, a newborn, and an altercation, all caught on tape. only on cbs this morning the attorney for robert f. kennedy's son reveals a big new developments. director james cameron on the new titanic in 3 d, what was it like to go 7 mi. deep into the water? those stories and more when you see you at 7:00. >> see you soon. the time now is 60 2:00,,,,,,,,,
