Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
Last we heard from Taggart Romney, he was saying he wanted to "take a swing" at Barack Obama after his dad got demolished by the president in the second presidential debate.
When we announced our Draft Romney for Senate scheme last week, the idea was to draft Mitt Romney, but we quickly ran into a major roadblock:
@jedlewison Mitt hears the word draft and he run to France!!! — @Amatodeb via web
But it turns out our problem might not have been the draft, but rather the Romney we targeted. Mitt's out, but apparently his son Taggart is considering a bid for John Kerry's seat. Before you get too excited, yes, it's true that CNN is reporting people close to him say it's not likely that he'll run, which really isn't a surprise given that he'd be a sure loser. His dad might have been governor of Massachusetts, but Obama did just as well in 2012 as 2008, and Mitt Romney was such a disappointment as governor that he didn't bother to run for reelection because he would have lost. That's not the kind of nepotism that wins elections.
Still, even though he's probably not going to run, you need not abandon all hope: the mere fact that he's keeping his name in the news by publicly mulling it is pretty strong evidence that he harbors ambitions to eventually run for office. And when that happens, we'll get to relive the hilarious Romney follies all over again.
