Romney Dropping Out - Making a Play for 2012?

The media is reporting this morning Mitt Romney's imminent departure from the GOP race. Apparently, the kids decided their shrinking inheritance wasn't worth continuing dad's losing battle for the presidential nomination.

The confluence of the announcement coming during the CPAC conference is remarkable. In my opinion, it raises the question: Have the conservatives abandoned the White House in 2008? Is Romney positioning himself as the conservative standard-bearer, following the 1976 Ronald Reagan strategy?
