This write-up in the NYT on Romney’s time in graduate school is fascinating:
It describes a Mitt Romney who is a pragmatic, over-achieving problem-solver, not an ideologue.
Again, it’s interesting to me how similar Obama and Romney are in their personalities, despite their political differences. Should Romney become the GOP nominee over the next few months, we’ll be faced with a choice between two pragmatic, compromising, wonkish, detail-oriented non-ideologues who would prioritize results over faithfulness to party ideology. From my perspective, we could have a worse set of choices.
