Clips From Last Night: Political Panel reviews Mitt Romney's three-state sweep

On the heels of Mitt Romney's victories in Maryland, Washington DC, and Wisconsin, on Tuesday "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed it's usual all-star political panel to review the results.

Comparing the current battle to a boxing bout, Carol Roth suggested the former Massachusetts governor is content to win by decision:

"There are certain fighters who go for the knockout punch, and there are certain ones who just do a really good job every round, and after 12 rounds you go to the cards," said the business strategist and bestselling author. "I think that that's Mitt Romney's strategy, he's stuck to it, and that's what we're going to see here. So, I do think that that prize belt is on the way."

Amy Holmes meanwhile, told Piers Morgan she noticed a change in the front-runner's demeanor, and strategy:

"Tonight Mitt Romney was buoyant, he was loose, he was relaxed," said the Glenn Beck's GBTV news anchor. "You didn't hear any words about his competitors. No Rick Santorum, no Newt Gigrich, no Ron Paul. It was directly targeted at President Obama, and trying to project an air of optimism, and moving forward."

As the expert analysts continued their assessment of Tuesday's primaries, Ben Smith concluded that the race for the GOP presidential nomination is essentially over:

"The horse has bolted," said the editor-in-chief of BuzzFeed. "These are the pipe dreams of these guys which are increasingly minor candidates. They don't together have enough to beat Romney. Even if they teamed up now...they're increasingly fighting over the same scraps."

Delegate counts aside, Dana Loesch revealed she'd like to see more passion and energy from the Republican leader:

"I think he needs to do a better job of fighting back against the media," said the conservative talk radio host. "I want to see more fire in the belly from my candidate, and he's got a long way to go in terms of being able to have that kind of fire and take that to the general election."

Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as the political panel recaps Mitt Romney's three-state sweep.

    I have been watching these political panels and Carol Roth is a breath of fresh air. It is nice to finally see politics with a lighter tone and the whole panel seems to have gotten lighter with her presence. It reminds me of a sports show.
