Should Todd Akin Quit His Senate Race?

There are times in politics, as in poker, that a candidate has to know when to hold ‘em, and when to fold ‘em, and right now the proper course of action is for Todd Akin to drop out of the race.

As indefensible as Akin’s comments were, he is dragging the Republican Party down with him. The DNC is trying to use Akin’s comments against Romney, and if Akin stays in the race and loses, he could cost the GOP control of the Senate.

Some moments are bigger and more important than a candidate’s political aspirations. This is one of them. Hopefully Akin will wake up before it is too late.
