Today's WaPost has an article on the contrasts between Governors Perry and Romney. I realize that some might see this as the liberal media dickering, trying to drive wedges into the Republican Party, yada yada yada. The truth is, the WaPost has it right--if the race comes down to these two men, it will feature two vastly different biographies, two vastly different personalities, and two vastly different approaches to life. And I couldn't ask for more--this kind of differentiation is what primaries are all about. The Republican Party will be better off for having had a gloves off primary, and whichever candidate wins will be much more seasoned when the time comes to take on President Obama.
Fred called it a head (Romney) vs. heart (Perry) thing. Not a bad way to think about it. Whatever the outcome, we will have a strong candidate. Let the games begin.
