Why is a "deeply private person" who "doesn't love attention" running for office--any major office? Obama is pretty private, too, but made his campaigns about average Americans. Romney was unable to do that with believability since his policies clearly favored upper incomes.

I think he felt entitled to it. Makes me wonder if those complaining about the "entitlement mentality" are projecting.

Maybe he knows at last what it feels like to do your best, work hard, even make yourself do uncomfortable things, but still fail to get a job--and after 6 years of trying and maybe more years thinking about it.

I think his best destiny is within the Mormon Church hierarchy, like head prophet or whatever they call their "pope."--I think that's where his heart is.
