Mitt Romney came in at second place in the recent CPAC straw poll with a strong 23% of the votes when you consider the front runner, Ron Paul, netted only 30% of the votes. I think we can safely say the race is still wide open. But evaluating comments on several message board forums, Romney is generating a good deal of attention and should most likely be considered a front runner at this time. I couldn't find a good youtube version of the whole speech, but here's a good clip showing the flavor of his remarks that have so far been well received: [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtmBRIrdDzA"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtmBRIrdDzA[/ame] If somebody has a link to the whole speech with good sound quality, I would appreciate your posting it. So what do you think? Is Romney a viable choice? Bad choice? Or something in between?
