Ish. Won’t he ever go away? Mitt Romney is perhaps the most egregious example of a striver in the current political landscape. And that’s hard to do! Since 94 he’s been begging to get some sort of higher government position. The one time he won was as Massachusetts governor and he’s had to disavow virtually all his positions from those years.
Now he’s hopping on the McCain bandwagon and it’s painfully transparent that his whole plan at the moment is to become the VP and put himself in line for succession. It’s not a bad plan but it is unseemly and reinforces the impression of Romney as someone willing to do anything, say anything or be anything in order to get ahead.
