You make the very large assumption that Romney would sacrifice principle for process. On the contrary, if you get the most correct information available, good advice from many sources then you are able to apply your principles to the best solution for a particular problem with the best possible outcome.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
