Even though I’ve endorsed him, I’ll be the first guy to admit that some of the stances in Mitt Romney’s past have given me pause. I understand that, after six years of Bush, the conservative movement doesn’t want to get burned again. So I’d like to direct your attention to Evangelicals for Mitt. Tonight is the first time I’ve really dug into their site, and I must say I’m pleasantly surprised by how thoroughly they seem to explore the Governor’s conservative credentials. I think this guy’s the best—indeed, the only—shot the conservative movement has (and sorry Kate, but that includes Fred Thompson).

Ya know, I heard a a talk show coming out of Austin (on one of my many travels last summer) discussing Mitt. Evidently, someone did a poll on the electability of a Mormon, or some such thing. Seems that fear of Mormons (the unknown) outweighs common sense in this country. I like Mitt, always have, and I think he’d make a terrific president. I just don’t think he can win. Rudy seems to have a lock in the straw polls…for now, and this disturbs me. People just don’t know enough about Mitt, which is sad.
I know there’s a lot of chatter to that effect, but it seems to me that Mormonism is about as overcome-able (I know, I’m making up words!) as any hurdle in politics. Plus, I take comfort in the fact that one of the most prominent guys pushing this “Mormons can’t win” line is Dick Morris, who has a tendency of being wrong…a few months ago, wasn’t Condi the ONLY one who could beat Hillary, who had the Dems’ nomination locked up, Dick?>>Plus, just wait for people to start learning about Rudy. Strange as it seems, a lot of people don’t know just how liberal he is…yet.
