Maureen Dowd, "Mitt’s Big Love": Morton's Fork?

I agree with Maureen Dowd that Americans face an unsavory choice in November.

In her latest New York Times op-ed, "Mitt’s Big Love" (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/15/opinion/sunday/dowd-mitts-big-love.html?partner=rssnyt&emc=rss), Dowd observes:

"WHAT a choice we’ll have in the fall: one man on a pedestal, another behind a wall.

Democrats and independents may have fallen out of love with President Obama, but Republicans and independents can’t fall in love with Mitt Romney. The two Harvard Law School grads are heading into a match with oddly matching flaws: both became famous while staying enigmatic and inaccessible."

It couldn't get any worse? Wrong. Imagine if Romney were suddenly to bow out of the race owing to concerns for his wife's health, and if Gingrich and Paul were the Republican frontrunners.

Prediction: This election will be determined by how Obama handles or mishandles Iran in the coming months. He will soon be facing a dilemma on the order of the Cuban Missile Crisis, which already has the Procrastinator-in-Chief nervously wavering from week to week (see: http://jgcaesarea.blogspot.com/2012/01/wall-street-journal-us-warns-israel-on.html).
