Contrary to what Garance writes here, notwithstanding the irrelevance of the "real" Mitt Romney, I continue to stand by the view that I'd prefer President Romney to President Rudy Giuliani, President Fred Thompson, President John McCain, President Tom Tancredo, etc. A lot of people seem resistant to the basic logical point that one of the Republicans has to be preferable to the other Republicans. And that person is Mitt Romney.
