romney sits atop what may be the most radical major political party in American history. If he wins
The longer he campaigns, and shifts shapes, the less we can be sure about what he actually believes. We tend, however, to put too much stock in what our elected leaders believe - and not nearly enough in the dominant ideology of their party and political base.
Interesting view of romney vs the republican base. He may want to be president more than any policy conviction, but his party will drag him wherever it wants. He is unlikely to resist or even want to.
We have learned that we cannot live alone, at peace; that our own well-being is dependent on the well-being of other nations far away. ... We have learned to be citizens of the world, members of the human community. ... We shall strive for perfection. ... We may make mistakes, but they must never be mistakes which result from faintness of heart or abandonment of moral principle.

This is very important news. Hope it get around enough to stir some uncommitted voters.
