Romney is Jim Leach's early GOP pick to "bring balance" to DC

First off, Leach's loss in November was the most surprising outcome of any race in Iowa . . . and arguably, in the nation. That he was ousted because he had an (R) by his name is not an understatement for he was less tied to Bush and the GOP congress than just about any Republican.

The dean of political editorialists, David Broder, wrote a great piece a little bit back about Leach. In it, Leach said:

"The Republicans have been governing from within" their party base, rather than reaching out to the other party, he said, and now that Democrats have the majority, they will be tempted by electoral dynamics to do the same thing.

It is possible, Leach said, that a new president could change the pattern, and he is rather hopeful that his early picks for the nominations -- Mitt Romney and Barack Obama -- might do that.


That's right Yoda! Romney is the one who will "bring balance!" (I'm expecting a good comment from you Yoda!)

Hat tip to the Johnson Co. GOP Blog entry for this one--and thanks for the mention!
