    A glimmer of the real Romney

    As a lifelong Democrat, I thought Mitt Romney’s concession speech Tuesday night was heartfelt and sincere. What’s sad is that this might be the first time in the whole campaign that I believed him.

    He might have done better if he could have found the strength to say what he feels, rather than believing what the polls say. I think that John Kerry learned eight years ago that echoing the polls didn’t work.
