It's hard to believe anyone is running for President who didn't want to run. Mitt Romney's eldest son says in a Boston Globe interview his dad was a reluctant candidate talked into running by wife Ann.
Tagg Romney suggests that reluctance contributed to the loss. Maybe it wasn't the gifts Mr. Romney said the President gave to his core constituencies.
If its true Mr. Romney was ho-hum about running, his loss is not unusual. Running for office like that takes a singular, craven, obsessive quest for power. To give up everything in life and spend months and years raising money, stumping for votes, currying favor, studying up on issues....well, how many people are willing and able to do that ?
It's not for the weak-kneed or passive.
