Fragrance of the month

From Roger Simon in the Reagan estate-connected Politico, on Tuesday's GOP debate:
Here are the winners and losers of Tuesday night’s Republican presidential debate, accurate to three decimal places.

FIRST PLACE: Mitt Romney

Analysis: Strong, clear, gives good soundbite and has shoulders you could land a 737 on. Not only knows how to answer a question, but how to duck one. Asked why he was so late in deciding to oppose abortion, Romney smoothly replied: “I'm not going to apologize for the fact that I became pro-life.”
Ooh, those shoulders. 7-3-7. "Makes you want to go out and buy a slide rule, doesn't it?"

Here's more from the Politico and Simon regarding Romney from 2/13/07 (just in time for Valentine's Day):
Romney has chiseled-out-of-granite features, a full, dark head of hair going a distinguished gray at the temples, and a barrel chest. On the morning that he announced for president, I bumped into him in the lounge of the Marriott and up close he is almost overpowering. He radiates vigor.
And MSNBC's Chris Matthews from January:
MATTHEWS: What do you think of him as an opponent? We're looking at him right now. He has the perfect chin, the perfect hair, he looks right. He looks like a Mountie. He looks like from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Can that guy capture the hearts of the American people...?
Maybe the GOP has been pushing its manliness fetish a bit too hard. Next, their boys will have to have their own fragrances.
Radiate vigor
Capture hearts
