I Don't Care Too Much For Money

Among the various opinions as to why Romney failed to catch fire, I think Derb’s correspondent has nailed part of it. But if envy always won the day, there’d have been no President Kennedy. My own contribution is this: McCain, while he has many enemies, also has many friends (including four who ran against him in this election: Thompson, Brownback, Giuliani and Huckabee). Romney, while he has allies, appears not to have any friends. That may be OK for a CEO. It’s untenable for a politician.
