CommentsMitt's non electability is due to his personality, and nothing else. Furthermore, he cannot do anything about at this stage of his life. It doesn't mean he is a bad person or that he is not qualified.
The operative buzz words to describe personality are charisma, charm, warmth, compassion, likability, friendliness twinkle in the eye, etc.
GOP candidates and potential candidates having that quality are Perry, Huntsman, Cain, Rubio, Christie. Having it to a lesser degree are Paul, Santorum, Bachmann, Gingrich.
I heard Mitch Daniels last night. Very competent but a personality as bad as Romney's. I hope he doesn't win a brokered convention.

I think Mitt Romney is a very strong candidate who will bring civility, strong moral character, and an experienced business sense to Washington DC. He does not bring any odd-baggage along with him.
Am I the only one that thinks we elect someone based on their credentials and character and NOT on whether they can compete in a Reality TV Show?

To the establishment Mitt is perfect for the same reasons that he is toxic to the base. His blandness means that he has no threatening ideas
So far Mitt Romney has lost two out of three primaries, twice to candidates that the establishment didn’t even feel were worthy of their attention. In his biggest victory in New Hampshire he barely managed to take 40 percent of the vote.
Like it or not, Republicans voters are not particularly thrilled about Romney. But how ecstatic can anyone be about a candidate whose main draw is electability. Electability is an excellent strategic calculation, but it garners about as much enthusiasm as any other form of expediency. Most people who vote the big ‘R’ recognize the importance of getting Obama out at any cost, but they are not going to get very fired up about a man whose only credential is that of being able to win.More...
