Romney vs. Gingrich: Who has the edge?

CBS News political director John Dickerson was joined Friday on Hotsheet Live by the New York Time's Jeff Zeleny, Real Clear Politics' Erin McPike and AP's Phil Elliott for a discussion on the battle between Republican candidates Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney.

"Voters (who) are just starting to tune in and seeing this as a two-man race, not between Romney and the President but between possibly Romney and Gingrich," Elliott said.

"People are waiting for Gingrich to screw himself up," McPike said. "To say something that he shouldn't say, but if that's all we are waiting for it may not happen."

"There is something about Gingrich, that he's harder to attack, he's harder to sort of criticize," Zeleny said.
