I have long been a fan of the writing of Frank Rich. Including his book on the media circus that was 2000-2007, The Greatest Story Ever Sold. Anyway, I liked this quote from his column this past Sunday.
"Romney, on the other hand, is the closest thing the G.O.P. has to a front-runner, and he is even more hollow than Santorum. Indeed, his appearance at CPAC on the morning of Friday, Feb. 11, was entirely consistent with his public image as an otherworldly visitor from an Aqua Velva commercial circa 1985."
Its true. My gf is worried about a Romney candidacy, but I think his hopelessness in 2008 is indicative of his chances this time around.
