Mitt Romney for Senate

We probably all remember fondly Mitt Romney’s response in one of the Republican Party’s debates consulting lawyers about the legality of pre-emptively engaging the country of Iran.  But now rumors have been swirling around PoliticalWire.com that he may be running for the office Ted Kennedy has left vacant. 

The interesting thing about this is that Kennedy was known for wanting to create a system of nationalized healthcare.  A great local columnist from my home state of New Jersey discusses this in an interesting article entitled What’s behind the push for mandatory coverage?  Among other points, he notes that though Romney now opposes nationalized healthcare, he supported exactly that sort of thing while governor of Massachusetts.
