    The word today is that Romney has tapped former Utah governor and HHS Secretary Mike Leavitt to lead his hypothetical transition and, perhaps, ultimately become his hypothetical chief of staff.

    "Mike Leavitt, the man planning the Mitt Romney presidency":
    This is the first encouraging news out of the Romney camp in a while, as Leavitt is one of the most prominent Republican proponents of health insurance exchanges in the country (aside from Romney, I suppose). Leavitt has been notable for often being one of the few Republican voices standing up to certain extreme elements on the far right who have been urging state governments to avoid implementing the ACA's exchanges-indeed, he's been a leading player in implementation in some places. The pick is leading to some dissent on the right: "Conservatives slam Romney transition pick over health law support"

    An interesting choice.

    I've been telling everyone who'll listen that once Mittens get's in office he'll look for ANY excuse to go back on his campaign promises just like Bubba did with the middle class tax cuts.

    Republitards suckered again!
