Romney and Thompson really are a study in contrasts. So far Thompson’s appeal is all personality and Romney’s all policy. Thompson is getting by with a fly by night operation while Romney benefits from an exquisitely managed campaign. Romney has resume and experience while Thompson runs on “persona” and would rather the stories about his Washington tenure( legal work, McCain Feingold) disappear. Thompson, although folksy, lacks the verbal acuity and precision to do well in press avails or townhalls while Romney flourishes in these settings. Neither is the complete candidate which is why we’re in for a battle to see who will take on Rudy.
