126. Two major differences:
Edited on Fri Dec-09-11 12:04 PM by No Elephants
1. When Romney ran for Gov, he had yet to do a single public flip flop. He had run against Kennedy as a liberal (and Massachusetts was accustomed to liberal Republicans) and he ran for Governor as a liberal.

2. Massachusetts does not put a whole lot of emphasis on a Governor (though it should) because the Legislation has been well over 90% Democratic for a very long time. They can override any guberenatorial veto, if they wish--and every Gov knows that very well. Some people (idiots) actually believe it is better to have a Rethug Governor because always having all power in one party is unhealthy.

neither of those things apply if Romney runs for Pres.
