Running Against Romney

Mitchell, Lincoln A.

Romney is, by the standards of most of the post-war period, a very ordinary candidate for his party's nomination. His relative lack of experience on foreign policy and singularly uninspiring style are clear weaknesses. However, he looks presidential, can speak fluently on most major issues, works hard and presents himself as bright and mature. He will be a strong opponent for President Obama, but his path to the nomination has been a strange one revealing the hollowness of today's Republican Party.
