'sorting it out'

National Review's Byron York wonders whether or not Mitt Romney is going to be able to convince Conservatives that he's not a pro-choice, pro-gay Reagan-hater. Read about it here.

The bigger problem? The 'recent-ness' of his views on particular subjects, just as he's ramping up to run for President.

After meeting Romney last week and speaking to him at length on a variety of subjects, I don't doubt his sincerity on abortion, or his social conservatism in general.

Voters, indeed, will have to sort it all out.

I agree that Romney is sincere in what he is saying now, but there's no question that the timing of his 'conversion' (or whatever you want to call it) does look politically motivated.

I'm still trying to figure out why I'm so sold on Romney. He's not the kind of conservative that Newt Gingrich is. No matter how successful Romney is in defining himself (or re-defining himself), his past record will always be there. But I can still see Romney as President, and I don't have the same confidence in any of the conservatives who are considering a White House run, including Gingrich.

A Gingrich/Romney ticket sounds great, doesn't it?

But what do you know? You think John Edwards is good looking.
