Hewitt plugs Romney, again:

Romney's "Ms"--the message on the economy, his and his supporters' money, the Mormons and the enthusiasm they would bring to the campaign, especially in Mormon-heavy states like Colorado and Nevada, and of course Romney's ties to his home state Michigan-- make the case for choosing Romney very strong.  An early selection would give the campaign an huge lift throughout the summer, one that could keep the already lower-than-expected Obama lead in the single digits.

If Romney is picked, Independents will flee to Obama.
