Jonah Goldberg, on Mitt Romney’s major obstacle to winning the GOP nomination:
I have shaken Romney’s hand a few times, and I can say he feels surprisingly lifelike.
Don’t get me wrong: if Mitt Romney gets the nomination, then I’ll vote for him. Cheerfully. The alternative is Barack Obama, and I’m kind of done with Barack Obama. But Romney’s… fragile. Fragile like Obama, and the current debate system is not actually helping him. One reason why I want the debates whittled down to five people (or less, at this point) is because Romney needs more on-the-griddle time. A lot more.
