I think if it was a he said-he said you would be right, Phil. But we now have I think four different people saying the same thing and no flat denial from Romney. The latter is odd, as I and others have commented, and clearly his opponents as McCain did today will use it as a wedge to make an affirmative action argument. For those who think Romney is not the most straightforward candidate in the race the fencing with the media likely doesn’t help put their minds at ease. How long the story brews and how serious it becomes depends on who else steps forward and whether Romney can give a definitive and credible response. For now, the story continues to bubble along. But it’s probably not as problematic as a new poll showing him behind in Iowa.
