But Mitt Romney, when all's said and done, keeps coming down on the right side.
Remarkable that in Massachusetts it has taken a Mormon governor from a minority party to step into the breach and eloquently present the arguments that a Catholic politician – at least one Catholic politician, in a state dominated by them – once would have been expected to make.
This Atlantic Monthlyprofile doesn't hurt Romney's chances.
Not surprisingly, Romney's positioning is drawing criticism.
The white-bread Mitt is hard to hate (though some are resolved to do so) and it'll be interesting to see what Mitt caricature surfaces as a meme on the Left. Is Bob Dobbs sinister enough?
