I think Chait and Ambinder both have it backwards.  If Obamacare continues to increase Obama's cred with voters, Romney will then *embrace* the similarities to Romneycare and try to co-opt the glow.  It would be a crowning flip-flop (or flop-flip?) to cap his political career.  I wouldn't put it past him, would you?

Ed Kilgore counters Ambinder point by point. Daniel Gross suggests that Romney missed a key opportunity to run Obamacare. I still think my boss James Bennet's summary of Romney is the best one: he aims to please.
