A kind of leadership
The Boston Globe has an illuminating column about ex-Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who recently called for the resignation of a judge he appointed to the Superior Court bench after she declined to hold a convicted killer on $50,000 bail for reasons that are hazy, but appear to be grounded in a non-activist judicial doctrine.
The killer fled to Washington State and allegedly killed a newlywed couple there, causing the Romney camp a lot of embarrassment in the process.
By calling for the judge's head, I'm sure Romney believes his rapid response team has gotten him well out in front of the story. It gave him the gumption to swat at Giuliani for having the temerity to turn this series of unfortunate events into something political.
I have nothing funny to say about this. Decide for yourself whether Romney seems ready for the White House.
