Neither Romney nor McCain have appealed to the conservative base like George W. Bush and have failed to capture republican’s enthusiasm. While President Obama maintains nearly the same level of enthusiasm from his supporters as he did in the previous election. Good news for the Obama campaign.

The Romney campaign will be inherently more cautious than the McCain campaign. I wouldn’t expect to see anything like the Sarah Palin sugar high/sugar crash in 2012. And a lot can go wrong between now and November. But this enthusiasm gap combined with Romney’s daunting electoral college math suggests a good playing field for Obama in 2012.
whatever, bartlet for america.
