Mitt Romney is a flip-flopper
There's still time to join Governor Gary Johnson on the Ron Paul bandwagon.
I agree that its an endearing personal characteristic. But that's what you want in a presidential candidate?!? We dont need anymore 30 hour work weeks in the White House.

Fred's second-biggest attribute as a candidate (after his devotion to federalism) was that he didn't really want to be president.
Good! At least now there is some chance we won't all be forcibly Verichipped!!
wekt, this may come as a surprise to you, but regardless of Fred Thompson's views on the 10th Amendment, he was Mr. Verichip himself and advocated for the Verichipping of all Americans.
I view Fred Thompson's apparent lack of enthusiasm for the campaign as a feature, not a bug.
And in turn, I view Senator Clinton's enthusiasm for the campaign as a bug and not a feature.
Thompson's campaign left him positioned as an acceptable VP choice for several of the GOP candidates, as well as a possible Cabinet member (e.g., AG). [He was already well positioned for a federal judgeship, if he wanted one.]
You can come out of a campaign far worse.
If Thompson's main flaw was that he didn't want to be President enough to debase himself into jumping into the campaign with both feet, what would make you think he would be eager to wear the vice-presidential clown suit?
