The EFM Feature

David’s out of town, so I woke up this morning and chatted with my twelve year old daughter Camille about last night’s debate.
“I was pleased at how no one came out swinging against Gov. Romney,” she said.
And honestly, I had an extra spring in my step because of the South Carolina event that unofficially kicked off the 2012 GOP contest for the nominee. Not because it was exciting — actually, it was verging on being both a bore and a joke. (Legalizing prostitution? My twelve year old had never heard of such and was appropriately shocked at the notion. My ten year old son was busy playing with Legos and didn’t seem to notice.)
However, it was interesting to get this process rolling again, and to see that no one was particularly going to stand out against Gov. Romney. Of course, these weren’t the “top tier,” with the exception of Pawlenty… who arguably might belong in a higher tier of candidates. My sister sent me a text asking me whom I consider is “top tier” who might realistically run?
Gingrich? Huckabee?
I don’t know… looking at the options, I just felt cautiously optimistic about Gov. Romney’s chances at being the GOP nominee this time around.
