WPost's Broder gives Leach Goodbye Treatment

You'll want to check out David Broder's column in the Washington Post this morning, which gives our outgoing Congressman Jim Leach some going-away love.

I'm really not sure that I buy the argument that the internet gambling bill had anything to do with his loss -- it sounds to me like a special interest group trying to take advantage of a coincidence for their own gain -- I think it's much more likely that it's the fact that Leach sat in one of the bluest Republican-held congressional district in the entire nation.

Still, it's a decent read and some interesting nuggets, including Leach's praise of Mitt Romney. Though I know this is no suprise to Jeff Fuller, I'm not sure that's a pairing I would have predicted.

You're right! I'm not surprised. Romney is a "synthesizer" kind of candidate. He's a good and likable person, a smart and wise man, "wicked smart", attractive, and articulate. You'll see many camps unting with Romney including centrists and conservatives.

Thanks for the mention here!
