In a way, Romney reminds me a lot of Michael Olowokandi. (I know that likening Romney to a 7-foot Nigerian man might seem strange at first, but stay with me.) The “Kandi Man” was a great basketball player on paper–great enough to be the number one overall pick in the NBA draft–but he was never able to actually put it together on the court once he got to the NBA. I feel like Romney’s having the same problems as he tries to take his political act to the highest level. On paper, he looks great, but there’s just something about him that doesn’t seem to add up in the minds of voters. I’m not sure if even a perfect pre-campaign or campaign strategy can compensate for that.
