Idle thoughts of a relatively libertarian Republican in Cambridge, MA, and whomever he invites. Mostly political.

I generally think of McCain as more electable than Romney but Romney as otherwise preferable. But sometimes it reverses:
Romney has been hitting McCain hard over the state's economic woes. McCain has been stumping around the state offering up the blunt assessment that the midwest is no longer going to be a hub of stable, high-paying manufacturing jobs. He has been emphasizing the need to transition the economy stressing the need for job training and the like. Romney, on the other hand, has cast the state's economic predicament as a "personal" issue to him. He is trying to portray McCain's assessment of Michigan's economy as needlessly pessimistic and detached.
