It's good to have a dream

By Richard K. Barry

Okay, Mike, I'll be watching you.

Politico reported yesterday that the Romney team is moving ahead smartly with its transition team efforts:

Dubbed "The Readiness Project" inside Romneyworld, the effort began in earnest after the Republican National Convention and is not only focused on compiling a list of job candidates, but also designed to create a 200-day roadmap for congressional relations during the post-election lame duck session and beyond.

The transition is being led by former Bush Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt, a former Utah governor and fellow Mormon who is expected to play a senior role in any Romney White House.

It's fun to bust Mitt's chops on this one, given that the odds are against him right now. But all campaigns go through the exercise. I get that. Things can change. Still, it must be hard to concentrate on such an intense job with the lay of the land being what it is.

I wonder if Mr. Leavitt and his team take really long lunches or go to the occasional movie in the afternoon.

  • I'm thinking: October Surprise! Perhaps a Supreme Court ruling that only white men over 60 can vote?
