Romney coming back?

It looks like Romney had a very good weekend at both debates, coming across as the winner, despite being ganged up on in the first debate. Plus, there's the small matter of winning the Wyoming conventions.

When all is said and done, he will emerge from New Hampshire maintaining the overall lead in delegates at worst. McCain's ability to pull in independents is likely to have Mitt in second place.

Now, I do not agree with all of Mitt's positions. In fact, I share AJ's concerns about his pandering to the Tancredo wing of the GOP. But he is the best all-around candidate I have seen on the GOP side.

Mitt Romney is a lot like George W. Bush in his positions (at least aside from immigration) - but George W. Bush sucked at communicating with the American public, and it cost him in 2005 and 2006 when conservatives listened to the siren song of those who demanded ideological purity and left him hanging.
