Just finished watching Romney’s terrific speech, and I bet a lot of people are wishing that he displayed more of that inspirational quality and verve in the campaign.
Again, it would behoove McCain to reach out to Romney starting now if he hasn’t already. Despite their personal differences and sharp elbows in the campaign, Romney has now made it clear that it’s necessary to support McCain. He’s too big an asset for McCain to ignore and not utilize.
And with that speech, the good will he’s engendered by his classy exit, and the support he enjoys from the conservative base, I think it’s safe to say he may have finally laid many of the questions about his conservative credentials to rest. Too bad the timing is so unfortunate.
