Congrats to Romney

Mitt Romney on Tuesday surpassed 1,144 delegates, essentially clinching the GOP presidential nomination.
The candidate deserves congratulations for enduring a brutal primary. His Republican opponents were aggressive, questioning not just his ability to win the election but his ability to lead.
Romney and President Barack Obama are strikingly different candidates, but they share a vulnerability as they seek to secure loyalty within their parties. The rhetoric of each is heavy on ideology, but both candidates have been decidedly pragmatic when faced with the challenges of leadership.
For the extremes of both parties, that’s a negative. We suspect most Americans, however, prefer leaders who focus on results rather than dogma.
