Sneaky, Sneaky, Sir!

Mike Huckabee won West Virginia on the back of a strategy move from John McCain. John is very aware that delegates for Huckabee turn into non-votes for Mitt Romney.

Reports are coming in that delegates supporting McCain were ordered from their higher-ups to vote for Mike Huckabee in order to prevent Mitt Romney from winning the 18 delegates that come with the state.

There were 2 votes since no delegate got a true majority of the votes and after Ron Paul was eliminated for finishing last, McCain's supporters abandoned him in a move that epitomizes "The enemy of my enemy is my friend."

They, as well as many Paul supporters rallied behind Huckabee and gave him the win by 47 delegates, out of a total of 1,100.

Huckabee now holds 18 of the 30 delegates that will be going to the RNC, 9 more are decided in the primary, and 3 undecided ones will go as well. But unfortunately for Mitt supporters (like myself), and good for McCain Supporters, Romney doesn't have them.

Strategery indeed!
