I just read a very interesting article on the Romney campaign and their recent attacks on Governor Perry from Texas. It was a very interesting and well written article on the Huffington Post. The impression I got was that Romney was running a very disciplined, well thought out campaign that was planned in advance with much thought and historical knowledge going in to it. They planned things out based not on what they wanted to happen, but on historically what happens, and they are ready for many occassions.
Will Romney ultimately win the Republican nomination and the Presidency? I don't know. I can't see the future.
But its very interesting to read about a campaign that is essentially the opposite of McCain's campaign.
Romney is a very, very intelligent and educated person. That doesn't mean he's a great politician or can get people "riled up" and to the voting booths, or that he will make a great leaeder, but it means he would do an amazing job as a high level administrator like Secretary of State at the very least.
I'll continue to follow his campaign now that I know more about him.
Ultimately, it comes down to fundraising. Romney has to be very thorough and well-planned to compete with Obama's thorough and well-planned campaign.
