    I'm not trying to build up Romney. I'm 100% an Obama man. But although he is pandering to them now 24/7, Romney is no teabagger. He's much more like a traditional Republican, you know, the ones we used to be able to work with. Obviously no one can predict how he would act if elected (shudder) after all this pandering, but at least in the past, he was successful in working with Democrats and actually accomplished some positive things while governor of Massachusetts.

      I just don't think most go to Washington now out of sense of civic commitment. It's a very lucrative career for many who would otherwise be snake oil salespersons. A few are decent and sincere, but the system as we have evolved it tends to favor the scoundrels.

      I agree that Romney is probably much more traditional than he is having to behave to get along with the crazies in his party. It's almost painful to watch him do crazy. His heart doesn't really seem into it.

      Improvement is change. Not all change is improvement.
