Mitt Romney Isn’t Going Anywhere In 2008

There have been several articles written of late about Mitt Romney throwing his hat in the ring for the 2008 Republican nomination and many of those pieces seem to spend an inordinate amount of time speculating on whether the fact that he’s a Mormon will play a huge role in the primaries.

But while Romney being a Mormon certainly wouldn’t help him in a run at the White House (Some things Mormons believe in come off as very strange to most Americans), his real problem is that he’s generally considered to be a squishy Republican from a liberal state who has now decided to pretend to be pro-life in order to be a viable candidate in the 2008 Republican primaries.

Even if you set his religious beliefs aside, conservatives in 2008 are likely to be deeply suspicious of a Romney candidacy and, quite frankly, it seems highly unlikely to me that he has any chance whatsoever in 2008.
