Walter Shapiro on Mitt Romney: "Top-Tier Presidential Contender Aroused Little Passion Among Voters" (Wikipedia)

QUOTE OF THE DAY:  “With the exception of Mike Dukakis (what is it about governors of Massachusetts?), it is impossible to recall a top-tier presidential contender who aroused such little passion among the voters.”

– Walter Shapiro on “Why Mitt Romney’s Presidential Prospects Might Not be Salvageable.” The Republic

There’s more from Walter Shapiro:   “The Mitt Romney crisis transcends the seven straight national polls showing Rick Santorum in the lead. It goes beyond the embarrassing reality that the son of an auto executive and two-term governor has been behind in every Michigan poll conducted since Groundhog’s Day. Even more devastating for Romney is that elite Republicans have begun to conclude that he cannot, if nominated, beat Barack Obama. About the only argument that still works for Romney among GOP insiders is that he would be less of a drag on the ticket than the strident Santorum or the mercurial Newt Gingrich.”
