There will be no end to the analysis of what went wrong for the Republican Party in this year’s presidential election. That, of course, means a close examination of the candidate, Mitt Romney, now a castaway by voters and a man whose political career is over — probably. We say probably because we remember Richard Nixon, who had nine lives as a politician. His political life was pronounced dead several times. He refused to die until his resignation as president sealed the political coffin.

Actually, for not being a very attractive candidate, Romney did pretty well. He gave President Obama a close race. Romney was a hard sell. For whatever reason there was something about him that didn’t catch on with many voters. No one doubted his “cleanness” as a man, and the fact that he was a very good person. He was charitable to the highest point but he didn’t use that kindness trait the way some  people said he should have in the campaign. He was qualified, had an excellent business background and he knows and understands government. He got caught in reversing himself on some issues but that’s not unusual for a politician. In fact, it could be a good trait.
