Will this NASCAR analogy break down?

Does Rick Santorum really want the NASCAR analogy to hold? He likened the possibilities of coming from behind in the NASCAR race to coming from behind to win the race to become the Republican presidential candidate. But that was before he race was postponed because of rain. So, if his analogy holds true, does that mean that there will be an open convention for the Republican nomination?

Mike Huckabee has a way with analogies

In an interview commenting on the New Hampshire primary race, Mike Huckabee likened it to a NASCAR race and carried on the analogy throughout the interview to make his points. He’s just automatically a folksy guy and maybe these analogies come to him naturally. but it’s one of the things that made him such an attractive candidate 4 years ago. And I suspect he’s worked on that part of his speaking as a way of connecting with his audience and of making his message clear and easy to follow.

This ability to use analogies can be developed. You can do it. Just begin to see how something could be described in other terms related to a parallel subject. Keep practicing and it will become second nature.

And let me know if it inspires you to run for office.
