10/25/07- Romney For President Announces Montana Senior Adviser-Chuck Denowh.

Please join with me in welcoming Chuck Denowh to be the Senior Adviser of the Montana Romney For President Team. The Following is a press release from the campaign headquarters on the issue.

Boston, MA – Today, Governor Mitt Romney announced that Chuck Denowh will serve as Senior Adviser of the Montana Romney for President team. Denowh is a Montana native and has been working in Republican politics in the state since 2000. He will play a critical role in continuing to build a strong grassroots organization for Governor Romney in the state.

"Chuck has a long record of working to promote conservative principles in the state of Montana. He understands the need for Republicans to act like Republicans and unite to bring conservative change to Washington," said Governor Romney. "I look forward to working with Chuck to make sure Montanans know I will work to strengthen our military, our economy, and our families."

"Governor Romney has shown strong leadership on the issues that are important to Montanans. As Governor, he fought to lower taxes, cut government spending, reform health care, and enforce immigration laws," said Denowh. "As President, he will bring that same energy and experience to Washington to turn around our government and make it work for the people of Montana, and the rest of the country."

Chuck joins previously announced Romney for President Montana Co-Chairs Former Governor Tim Babcock and Secretary of State Brad Johnson as a part of Governor Romney's Montana team.

Background On Chuck Denowh:

Chuck Denowh Most Recently Served As The Executive Director Of The Montana Republican Party. In four years time under Denowh's leadership, the Party grew from three employees to twenty and fundraising nearly tripled. He also implemented Montana's first party-based grassroots organization with offices in seven counties serving over 1,000 volunteers statewide. Following the 2006 election, Chuck left the Republican Party to start his own political consulting business and he joined the Montana Group in mid-2007.

Denowh began his political career on the staff of the Montana House of Representatives, where he worked as Chief Policy Aide for the House Majority Leaders in 2001 and 2003. Denowh earned his BA and MPA from the University of Montana. He's a Montana native from Sidney, where his family maintains a registered Angus cattle operation.


10/19/07- Sam Brownback Dropping out??

If my sources are correct, Sam Brownback will be dropping out of the Presidential horse race today in Kansas. Even though he showed up for a scheduled book signing this morning at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, he dismissed questions from reporters inquiring about his future intentions. Even though he is planning to drop out of the presidential sweepstakes in Kansas today, Senator Sam Brownback still showed up for a scheduled book signing this morning at the Values Voter Summit in Washington. He has scheduled a press conference in Topeka for late this afternoon. Sam Brownback is still planned to speak at the conference today but then will be catching a flight back to Kansas. Now we'll see what unfolds.


10/18/07- Romney Scores More Key Endorsements.

The The Brody File has learned that Dr. Don Wilton, Senior Pastor At The First Baptist mega Church Of Spartanburg, South Carolina and former President of the South Carolina Baptist Convention has endorsed Mitt Romney. The Romney campaign will release this on Friday morning but read it here on The Brody File first: Here’s Dr. Wilton’s quote:

“I am proud to stand alongside Governor Romney as he pursues our nation’s highest office. His values are my values - protecting the sanctity of human life, defending marriage and strengthening the family. We need someone in Washington who will stand up for traditional families and Governor Romney is that person,” said Dr. Wilton. “While we may not agree on theology, Governor Romney and I agree that this election is about our country heading in the right direction. Governor Romney is the best candidate to stand for conservative values in Washington.”

The key line above is where he says, “His values are my values”. That’s the money line that some Evangelical leaders seem to be embracing when it comes to Romney.

The Romney campaign has to be doing cartwheels over all these Evangelical endorsements this week. This one in South Carolina is significant because the Mormon factor is more at work down there. Romney is in a dogfight down there. He wasn’t polling terribly well in very Evangelical South Carolina earlier in the year but he has come on quite a bit. An endorsement like this could go a long way.

******As you know, Governor Mitt Romney has emerged as the obvious choice for conservative evangelical voters -- even though we have different theologies, we have identical stances on social issues.

This week, the Family Research Council and the Alliance Defense Fund are hosting a big evangelical conference in Washington, DC. Every Presidential candidate will be speaking and political reporters will be tuned in for the results of the Presidential Straw Poll.

"Evangelicals for Mitt" will be there. Interestingly, we just learned that donors of the Family Research Council can vote in this straw poll, even if not present.

So, I'm asking you to:

1. Go on-line to www.frcaction.org.
2. Once there, click on the large banner that says "Participate in the 2008 American Values Straw Poll."
3. If you are not already a member of FRC Action, you can join by submitting an annual donation of any amount (minimum: $1.00). After joining, you will be taken directly to your on-line straw poll ballot where you can vote for Governor Romney.

Again, this will take just a few clicks and a $1 to send a message. The "religious right" needs to rally behind one, pro-life candidate: Gov. Romney!


10/10/07- Romney and Giuliani face off on economy and taxes.

Mitt Romney looked comfortable last night at the 6th republican debate that took place in Dearborn, Michigan. From facing off with Rudy about the economy and taxes while he was governor to poking fun with Fred Thompson about his "Law and Order" career appearing at the end. Mitt addressed issues again like health care, taxes, economy, and mentioned he was the most qualified one at the debate when it comes to the economy and business from his past ventures in coorporate America. The debate was aired on MSNBC and lasted two hours. As McCain mentioned that he would take immediate action if a war was needed, others said they would go to congress to get it's approval. When it comes to protecting the United States, McCain was firm in his stance stating that it's the very reason he would take the oath to protect the country from any kind of terrorist activity, securing the borders and making the U.S. a better place for generations to come. One of many applauses arose when Romney made a big statement about supporting a republican canidate that supported the principles of Ronald Reagan with a strong military, economy and family values. On another point, Romney stated that Rudy took the line item veto all the way to the Supreme Court and took it away from the President of the United States while Romney exercized the line item veto 844 times as Governor. All in all, it appeared from the media sources that Fred Thompson's debut was not as glorious as all thought it would while Mitt and Rudy made the high points of the night sparring on taxes, economy and the line item veto.

Former Lieutenant Governor of Michigan Connie Binsfeld Endorses Governor Mitt Romney


The Michigan Republican Debate is going to be held in Dearborn MI October 09, 2007. The debate will be airing on CNBC from 4pm until 6pm Eastern Daylight Time.

She shares my passion for strong families, creating jobs, and keeping more money in the pockets of hardworking families. I look forward to joining them on the campaign trail in Michigan."

10/03/07-Ann Romney's Website, New to public!

Let's take a moment to get to know Ann Romney a bit more. The following is a little about the website and how Ann would like to structure it in regards to her family and husband as he is running for President of the United States. Enjoy.

Ann states:


ANNROMNEY.COM is the location for information about our family and my efforts on the campaign trail. On the new site, I will provide an insider, behind-the-scenes view of the campaign. I hope this site will be a forum to not only share ideas and information, but also to share opportunities for getting involved with the campaign.

In the Causes section, I talk about something very close to me. I hope the story of my struggle with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) will bring awareness to the disease and help others who are struggling with MS, particularly those who are newly-diagnosed.

On AnnTV, you can view my recent speeches and media appearances. It’s wonderful how modern technology allows us to share our experiences on the campaign trail with people from across the country.

I love to cook and will be sharing some of my favorite recipes on the site. I’ve started with my grandmother’s Welsh Skillet Cake recipe and invite each of you to submit some of the favorites from your kitchen.

There’s much more to see, including photos and news. Just go to AnnRomney.com and take a look for yourself.

Campaigning for Mitt has been an extraordinary experience not only for me, but for our entire family. I’m convinced that Mitt will become the Republican nominee for President and then go on to win in November. We’d appreciate your help in making that a reality.

With their leadership, we will make sure our nation continues to have the strongest military, the strongest economy, and the strongest families in the world."

Honorary State Chairman Governor Tim Babcock added, "As a former Governor, I understand the unique challenges that come with leading a state. Governor Romney has displayed the kind of leadership our country needs as we face a new generation of challenges.

He understands how to solve tough problems and will provide the leadership we need in Washington."

Joining Governor Babcock, Secretary of State Brad Johnson said, "Governor Romney has the right values and priorities for voters not only in Montana, but across the country. He has a lifetime of real world experience and he understands our families want lower taxes, a strong national defense, and the best opportunities for our children. With Governor Romney's proven leadership, our nation will remain the strongest in the world."

6/9/2007-Mitt Romney coming to Montana June 22


IR State Bureau - 06/05/07

HELENA — Presidential candidate Mitt Romney will speak to Montana Republicans at their state convention in Helena June 22.

Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, will speak at the breakfast at 8 a.m. at Red Lion Colonial Hotel.

“Attracting a top presidential contender is a great thing for Montana,” said convention organizer Jake Eaton. “Governor Romney’s attendance at our convention speaks to the growing importance of Western issues on the national stage.”

With only three electoral votes and one of the latest presidential primaries in the nation, Montana rarely attracts major presidential candidates.

Convention delegates will receive tickets to attend the Romney speech and breakfast as part of their registration fee. Members of the public are welcome, with tickets for breakfast and the speech costing $50 apiece.

The keynote speaker at the convention dinner June 22 is Dick Wadhams, chairman of the Colorado Republican Party. Wadhams managed the successful 1994 campaign of former U.S. Sen. Conrad Burns, R-Mont., and was a consultant on Burns’ 2000 re-election victory over now-Gov. Brian Schweitzer.

Other speakers are U.S. Rep. Denny Rehberg, R-Mont., the state’s senior Republican elected official, who will address delegates at breakfast June 23, and Secretary of State Brad Johnson, who will speak at the lunch session on June 22.

Delegates to the convention, which runs from convention runs June 21-23, will elect the party’s top leaders. Current Chairman Karl Ohs isn’t seeking re-election. So far, the only announced candidate for the post is Erik Iverson of Missoula, who is Rehberg’s chief of staff.

The convention also will provide training sessions for candidates and grass-roots leaders.

Those interested in attending the convention may contact the state party at (406) 442-6469 or visit the party’s Web site at: www.mtgop.org

1/31/2007 Bopp Another Conservative!



The pre-loaded Romney Runnin Campaign has landed another pro-life verifier. A key endorsement of RNC member James Bopp, Jr., who is known for the long-time counsel for National Right to Life and other social consevative groups in the United States. Bopp has argued four times before the Supreme Court on issues facing the family in society and is well known for this conservative activism and outgoing attitude. He will be Romney's "Special Adviser on Life Issues." His endorsement speaks for itself in the conservative credentials of Mitt. Bopp spearheaded a resolution at the recent RNC winter meeting designed to poke Sen. John McCain in the eye: it repudiated his signature campaign finance legislation.


1/30/2007 Romney Has Turned the Corner!


Apparently, the Christian Broadcasting Network thinks Mitt's religion has taken a new turn and has turned the corner regarding the religious test for conservatives. Although that is not over however, a new corner has been turned. Feel free to read the linked article above.


1/29/2007 On the road Again!


As time is moving on, Mitt Romney's presence is moving forward with key endorsements and speeches with lots of miles in between. He has been traveling to South Carolina, Iowa, New Hampshire, and everywhere between while key endorsements are surfacing one by one. As they say, by the small and individual steps does the long and crazy journey become a reality. Amazingly, his momentum continues to move forward as he is invited to speak at national conferences, on national television and media networks as well as attract media attention everywhere he goes.


1/27/2007 MR08' Will Anounce More

I must have missed this but Romney announced some 16 names of supporters that have endorsed him. You can check it out here. And early next week, on Monday and Tuesday, January 29-30, Governor Mitt Romney and his son, Tagg Romney, will travel to South Carolina. Governor Romney will deliver the Keynote Address at the Aiken Rotary Club in Aiken, SC. The Romneys will travel South Carolina and then hold a press conference to announce more key endorsements from leaders in that area.


1/26/2007 John McCain, Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani Top GOP

I know this is a little late but it needed to be added. CBS some weeks back posted on their website that John McCain, Mitt Romney, and Rudy Giuliani ARE the heavyweights in the GOP field going into 2007.

Recently, in a joust to all three in one shot, the Majic City Morning Star took a shot at all 3. Talk about efficiency, 3 birds hit in one shot! In Montana, that's called "Shotgunin". Anyhow, it's kind of interesting how somehow the article put a laso around all three as liberals. You'll have to check it out for yourself.

In other news, in one GOP Straw Poll, MR08'(Romney) lead with over 12,000 votes in, the latest GOP Bloggers 2008 Straw Poll of GOP contenders shows Romney as both the number one 'first choice' of bloggers and blog readers and the 'most acceptable candidate.' As it is still early to really make assumptions, it does show that there is interest online from bloggers and readers in favor of him. However, in other polls, he trails in a close third at Pajamasmedia Straw Poll 2008.


For future note: On Monday Jan. 29 2007, The National Review will issue an article entitled, "Join the Club: Mitt Romney and Pro-Life Conversion" by Kate O'Beirne. I'll try to add a link (if I don't forget) to it when it comes. Until then, here's a sentence or two to chap your lips.

"Romney has been stating his abortion position with the conviction of a convert, in terms that can appeal to a broad audience. Many social conservatives are persuaded that his conversion is genuine."
1/24/2007 A Look at Mitt

This is an article that takes a look at Mitt and his ability to communicate as a national leader which while taking a look at his abilities and potential. The following is an excerpt taken from the Riehl World View.

"While too early for me to come out for a particular Republican Presidential candidate, my instincts have been piquing my interest in Mitt Romney, so I wanted to set time aside to review an Instapundit podcast featuring Romney. Additionally, other materials recently came bloggers way via the Romney team. I looked them over, too.

Like many on the Right, I sincerely believe that when basically conservative and some libertarian principles and political ideas are communicated effectively to the American people, they win the day. I'd apply the same reasoning to at least a portion of why our effort in Iraq has suffered in terms of its support from the American people. Consequently, a candidate who understands communication and is effective at it is a significant part of how I intend to finally make the choice of which candidate to support."


Hoekstra Joins Team Mitt


The following News Release was issued today.

"Boston, MA - Today, Governor Mitt Romney announced that U.S. Representative Pete Hoekstra (R-MI), the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, will be joining the Romney for President Exploratory Committee. Representative Hoekstra will serve as Governor Romney's adviser on all matters pertaining to U.S. intelligence.

Governor Romney also named Representative Hoekstra as a Co-Chair of his Michigan state organization helping to organize areas of Western Michigan."

The rest of the article can be found at his Exploratory Committee website if interested.
1/23/2007 Hastert endorses Romney
Add another one to the "Romney Run" of supporters.

Former US House Speaker Dennis Hastert, of Illinois announced his support for former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, a continued sign that Romney is building credibility in Washington.
Hastert is probably the most prominent current member of Congress to announce his support for Romney


Mitt Romney's great trek

A large bias against a Mormon for president is the next barrier to fall in US politics.

The Christian Science Monitor's View-Click Here for the link.

Here's part of it.
At first, it sounds like a bad joke: What if a woman, a black, and a Mormon ran for president? Yet with Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Mitt Romney running for the White House, this welcome burst of diversity in US presidential candidates is no joke.

Each of these politicians comes with enough experience, patriotism, and popular support to be taken seriously for the 2008 contest. Yet polls show a number of Americans still hold some prejudice against them simply for their sex, race, or religion.

Yahoo News


Yahoo News brings up an interesting article about American voters and who they say should be the president. They endorse the spirit of our very own constitution, which states that there should be no religious test for public office. The following is part of the article from Yahoo News.

This is not an endorsement of Romney - we leave it to the voters to decide whether he deserves to be president. Rather, we endorse the spirit of Article VI in the Constitution, which states that there should be no religious test for public office.

Kennedy captured that spirit well in 1960 when he said: "While this year it may be a Catholic against whom the finger of suspicion is pointed, in other years it has been - and may someday be again - a Jew, or a Quaker, or a Unitarian, or a Baptist."

For latest info, feel free to tap into the Mitt Romney Exploratory Committee which has released several new excerpt videos of his address in Israel today at www.mittromney.com. or visit a blog in support of Romney for the GOP Primary Nomination at Reason 4 Romney-Blog


---As a side note, the President of the United States of America will address the nation in his "State of the Union Address" tonight. As one is sure, President Bush will respond to the Iraq situation and proposals in the future of the rebuilding of Iraq but also our issues we face here at home in the United States of America.
-----May "God Bless America" -As the song entitles.----

Pass Me DeMints Please! :-)


South Carolina's Senior Senator DeMint endorsed Mitt Romney for the 2008 South Carolina Republican party. He officially joined on with the Mitt Romney campaign as a Senior Advisor.

To listen to DeMint’s interview on the Ralph Bristol radio show explaining his endorsement, click here.


Here is something to think about for Montana conservatives in politics regarding Mitt Romneys abilities and what some people think about his chances I've posted part of it below. From the final results of his $7 million dollar one-day fundraiser, it will be interesting to see him through the primaries of which their is a new primary debate coming up in April in New Hampshire. It will be hosted by CNN and WMUR.


John R Says:

LJ, I have witnessed two Romney campaigns here in Mass. and this guys problem is not electability. He is brilliant in debates, is a great communicator on the campaign trail, and his opponent’s attacks just don't stick because any honest observer realizes Romney is such a decent man. There are about ten conservatives in Mass. but Romney won with well over 50% of the vote. He reminds me of Reagan in so many ways - a sense of humor which he never loses, one of the better speech-givers out there, he even kinda looks like Ronny. Even when he began to campaign for pres. here in Mass. his approval rating stayed above 40%. Polls are significant at this stage, but I would not go overboard on a guy who is unknown and is probably known as the Mormon guy to those who do not live in New England or are political buffs. You ask how he can win states trending blue when he won in Mass.! Sure, he was pro-choice at the time but everyone knew he was a conservative and voted for him anyway, it was unbelievable!

One who contributes to this site is a conservative by the name of HeavyM.
HeavyM is a 27 year old who hails from Wyoming, the second-most conservative state in the country based on recent Presidential election results. He became interested in politics during the 2000 election while in college and ended up sorting out his personal beliefs to the point where he voted for George W. Bush - and did the same more enthusiastically in 2004, though he is a lot less enamored with Bush now.

This is why conservatives should support Mitt Romney. He went through the correct legislation to move the ban on Marriage in Massachusetts forward and stood up for traditional values. Although it's up to the legislators to vote, it's important to note that he reminded them of their responsibility in dealing with issues of the people.

These are the only one's I found in a limited time in Montana so if you have an article or website that is recent that is also respectful, noteworthy, or in favor of Romney, send them to me for I won't have time to be looking in all the sites. Also, if you would like to jump online and help in this website, let me know.
Thanks, Take care

Brace yourself for the worst is still to come. Here's an example.
Dear Mitt Romney Supporters/Bloggers,

I'm sure you are all aware of MassResistance, the group that recently distributed a "report" entitled "The Mitt Romney Deception." The purpose of their report is to discourage conservative voters from supporting Governor Romney's expected presidential campaign and, needless to say, it is filled with distortions. It deals primarily with the issues of abortion and gay rights/marriage. It has been distributed widely among conservative circles and has even generated media attention.

On January 2, Evangelicals for Mitt will post a detailed response to MassResistance that will set the record straight. We're hoping that all of the "for Mitt/for Romney" blogs and websites will feature a prominent link to the post and publicize the response as much as possible. Will you help us spread the word and defend Governor Romney from these misleading attacks?

Thanks, Americans for Mitt

12/26/2006-Night After Christmas

Twas the night after Christmas and all through the house, not a child was crying, you could have heard a mouse! With holiday cheer and a future New Year, makes me think of Mitt and what Montanans will get. With Rudolph eyeing his past and McCain trying not to crash, makes Romney's critics frown, and try to bring him down. With nothing to lose, from work to personality, brings his mormon faith into modern reality. So off to the races, and out the gate, "Who will be Montana's Pick in 2008?"

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and may the next year be as exciting and challenging as this last year, but in regards to Our Man Mitt; No matter what, there's a future ahead.

It is this time of season that we take a moment to reflect, analyze and look to the future. That is what Mitt is doing this season (as well as spending time with family) as well as contemplating his contribution to the future of our country and world. For that, my friends, is a noble way to think! May we all take that example and learn. Doing good presently for a future tomorrow, will make us feel better when we look to the past. Let's give him the support he needs in making this country and state of Montana a better place!

Our very own “Montana’s For Mitt Romney-Website” has been nationally linked to over the holidays; recognized, quoted, and referenced by other national websites that are in support for Mitt Romney. One of the articles was even referenced in a 12/22/06 posting about a “New Montana Website” at blog.electromneyin2008.com . This is considered the number one website for Romney supporters in that Mitt Romney’s wife founded the site. The other one was in an email regarding the website from “Americans for Mitt” which recognized the site as a grassroots appearance.

I posted over a week ago about referencing other Montana websites who talk and reference Mitt Romney and his expected presidential run. It has been brought to my attention of an article regarding Who will be Montana’s Pick in 2008? which sparked the idea of the previous poem.

It’s at this time that I think it’s appropriate to ask for those who would like to start posting material on this website and referencing articles about mitt in Montana and surrounding areas. If you are a strong supporter of Romney and would like to add postings to this website, email jondmcniven@yahoo.com.

I will continue to post what I can but invite others to help in this project and cause for I am busy attending school fulltime and my time is very limited even though I like supporting Romney for America's President in 2008.

Until then, continue to tap into the main blogs/webpages in my initial posting. Take Care,

I've wondered in the past how a republican like Romney has been able to get elected in a very liberal state like Massachusetts. I'm impressed by what he has done and the manner in which he carries himself. Another thing that has come to my attention is the fact that he was able to pass a bill into law requiring all citizens in his state to have health insurance. I wonder if that is possible in Montana. What do you think?

However, I'm optimistic that the name Mitt Romney will be reaching the news in Montana since over the last couple of months I've seen him in the news, on tv, and read about his potential. It has recently been announced that a rumor about a date of announcing his candidacy will be January 8, 2007! If and when he announces this, I'll definitely put it on the webpage. In addition, it has been highly mentioned by well known names in broadcasting programs that Mitt is the "Alternate to John McCain". Only time will tell so be watching for news articles and anything from Montana that would be relevant. If and when that is the case, please let me know so that I can start referencing articles and linking to these articles that are being generated out of the Big Sky Country of Montana. Until then, continue to tap into these websites which are very active and up-to-date on the most current events. Elect Romney for President in 2008 Blog.

Montana is not known for major national politics but as some say, "What comes easily, will go just as easily". I don't think this is the case for Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney who seems to be gaining speed in the public eye for a number of reasons for a potential 2008 White House Run.

I've read recently in the last couple of months about Governor Romney and the knit-picky things that are being published about this guy. In fact, I've come to realize that a number of the articles have stooped so low to start targeting him "below the belt" as they might say. I've got two thoughts that come to my mind in regards to these articles:

1. It sure must be a slow day in regards to publishing!!! OR
2. The 2008 elections are that important that these things are coming out 2 years before the elections. Either way, because of this guy's charisma, work ethic, and activity along with the misfortune of others; he has come into the national spotlight more easily than anyone else.

Although he is surfacing quickly in the national spotlight; his depth and name recognition are because of what he has done in the past starting from scratch and making it big over time and business mentality. In fact, at this point for Romney in gaining any national recognition, I would venture out on a limb to say that he's just pleased to be having articles generated about him at this point, especially since at this time he hasn't even declared his run for the white house!

So as to Montana, will anyone in the Big Sky Country be picking up on this family man and write an article about him for starters? I have a "hunch" he's not going anywhere even though he has surfaced quickly and continues to hit the national stage with name recognition.




9/08/2006-***Initial Posting***
I invite you to join with me in my efforts to encourage Mitt Romney (Gov. of Massachusetts) to declare his candidacy (hopefully in January of 2007) for President of the United States in 2008. The Commonwealth PAC is an organization that is prepared to support him in addition to www.runmittrun.org. Feel free to read more on either website and contribute as neccessary. I feel his greatest challenge will be getting through the primaries and getting his name out there among individuals. I'm impressed by what he has done previously, presently, and his vision in the future of our country and abroad. I've seen this man in action, whether in the U.S. 2002 Winter Olympics, as Govenor of Massachusetts, as a family man, business man, man of faith, and leader; I feel he will be the best man for the job. I invite you to be active in the organizations in your own localities by signing up for emails, volunteering, contributing, sharing with others, or just showing support when he comes near your own cities.

Remember, this position is an elected position and nothing will get accomplished unless we as the citizens of the United States are actively engaged and support those whom we decide to support while moving forward in our own lives. Although I'm very busy in school right now, I had fun starting this webpage that could inform the masses about where to go for Republican issues and support Mitt for American President in 2008. If there's enough interest, I'd like to start a blog but that won't happen until I get time (probably never), so until then tap into the others right now. Cheers

Oh, according to my sources, this is what impresses me most about this guy, "Speaking of money, it should be noted that Romney has served as governor without taking a salary to encourage the spirit of volunteerism and out of his desire to give something back."

OK, if you've got time, the following is one of the longest articles I think I've ever read by a reporter (believe me, it's 5 internet pages long). It says it all and has so much info I didn't know about this guy. It's entitled "The Holy Cow Candidate" (written in September 2005).

The Alternate to McCain Surprising, because it's from a Boston newspaper. (see below)
