Clip from Last Night: Catherine Crier and Lynn Forester De Rothschild on the state of the GOP race

Amidst Rick Santorum's impressive performance in Tuesday's caucuses, Piers Morgan welcomed a host of political insiders to offer their perspective on the "Santorum Sweep".

While impressed with Santorum's wins in Colorado, Missouri, and Minnesota, Catherine Crier suggested his future may be in another office. "Not at all to rain on Rick's parade, but I think the biggest conversation coming out of this may well be that he is at the forefront as a V.P. candidate and might well be a real match for Romney."

But the television personality and author did contend that the race isn't over: "This is not in the bag for Romney. There is a very, very long way to go."

Lynn Forester de Rothschild also joined "Piers Morgan Tonight" Tuesday, adding some insight into Santorum's new place within the race: "I think we should be pleased for Rick Santorum. He's such a nice, earnest man. It's his time in the sunlight," said Forester. "There have been so many non-Mitt candidiates. It sort of seems like this is probably his turn."

However, the C.E.O. and financial insider is using history to predict the future: "John McCain lost 13 primaries out of 23 after he won Floirda. So you kind of have to bet it' still going to be Romney's, but Santorum does change the dialogue."

    I am insulted by Jon Voights obvious racism and ignorance. What is truly offensive is the opening scene with Voight cutting down President's Obama's father. I have never in my life heard such a mean spirited political statement. CNN is scraping the bottom of the barrel with Voight and I am surprised at Piers for having him on the show. He is a low life.

    You are crossing the line and tonight are showing your personal political partiality – not professional. I have so admired you until your interview with Jon Voights. I am so dissappointed. Please clarify your nationality – have you dual citizenship or are you commenting as a non-voter?
    If possible, can you please ride the rail as an impartial commentor?
    Or, if not, you have lost me. And maybe CNN.

    The evangelicals – GOP – march for pro-life and condemn President Obama yet the evangelicals are preaching “moral’ and attacking President Obama concerning contraceptives yet it has always been that the protestants have always promoted contraceptives. Protestants have always frowned on the minorities for having too many children. Notice how most protestants have only 2 or three children. They are either celibate or using contraceptives. Is that Pro-Life? I don’t think they are celibate. The evangelicals are also the ones to protest against women breast feeding their babies. Oh, how sinful.

    RULES ARE RULES
    If you are playing baseball and you are running to second base, second baseman catches the ball before you get to the base, YOU ARE OUT.

    This means that if you are the runner and whether you are BLACK, WHITE, POLKA DOT, FAT, SKINNY, TALL, SHORT, GAY OR HAPPY and the same thing happens – the ball gets to second baseman before you touch the base YOU ARE ALSO OUT.

    THE RULES APPLY TO ALL – EQUALLY – THE UMPIRE HAS TO BE FAIR TO ALL AND PROTECT ALL EQUALLY. THOSE ARE THE RULES.

    THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES HAS TO BE FAIR TO ALL. THAT IS HIS JOB.

    THE CHURCH IS THERE TO GUIDE US. IT IS UP TO US TO BE MORAL. I LOVE MY CHURCH. I LOVE BEING CATHOLIC. I HAVE FILIAL FEAR TO OFFEND JESUS. I AM DOING MY BEST.

    What all preachers and priests should do during services is to ask the congregation to lift their hands if they use BIRTH CONTROL – BUT FIRST , THE PREACHER AND PRIEST WILL CLOSE THEIR EYES AND LET GOD COUNT THE RAISED HANDS.

    Please,Rand Mack ,check out the jouroLists that pretend to write the truth. Many of these fwitelng hacks have been so brainwashed or ,indeed,so dumb as to actually think that they are always 100% right while the people (republicans) who disagree with their brilliance are always wrong. This fallacy is too stupid to even discuss.
