oh, why can’t he be more like Bob Dole and just stump for Pepsi?

So.  Mitt Romney.  Running, and a shoo in at that, for a seat in Utah.  To provide a Utah conservatism for the Republican Party — supplementing, I suppose, Mike Lee’s.

There have been losing presidential candidates who took their spot in the Senate.  Goldwater.  Humphrey.  Of course, they were senators before running for president.  Romney’s seems a new course.

Skipping states to snag a seat is interesting.  Of course, to the detractors who go to him saying “Why don’t you stay out in (mass)?”, he can always say, “Two words.  Henry.  Clay.”  That should shut up all cries of carpet-bagging!
