Thanks, I had time to read the Romney article and the one on progressives.

I was in Massachusetts for over a year of Romney's tenure. It should matter that he is so widely despised in the state where he was Governor. Not that anyone would want him there, but he had promised to attempt another term (he handed the seat over to the progressive Democrats and the state's first black governor).

I think he's a despicable person with no moral center (ironically, given his identification with his faith).

Anyway, his campaign doesn't seem to be thriving.

As for progressives, we don't seem to be together on what's wrong and where to head. I haven't read Joe Klein much since he left Rolling Stone for Time, but it's not surprising that he, like Scott Simon on NPR, gave up their cloak of journalistic objectivity (integrity?) and endorsed the war.
