Never count a determined man out. John McCain was down for the count last summer. Broke and written off and flying coach. Now he's taken Florida, and the Republican race to Super Tuesday has a whole new complexion.

Giuliani is headed for the sidelines. Mike Huckabee hanging in, maybe for a VP seat with Florida's winner. Mitt Romney and his millions girding for what could be a last stand. And the GOP base contemplating the never-surrender maverick, McCain, as their standard bearer.
