I have watched Mitt Romney campaign for the past few months, and I doubt there is anything he could do that would cause me to not vote for him. I worked for Salt Lake City during the Olympics and witnessed the impact he made while heading up the games. It was inspiring.

I know he has a high level of integrity and is a man of strong moral values. My comment to him would be to not apologize for being successful. Romney should embrace his success, and let people know that if elected, he will do what he can to give everyone the opportunity for success in their endeavours. We need a leader that can give all of us an opportunity to succeed, and getting the government out of the way is one of the things that needs to happen. Romney should demonstrate that he knows how to create a business atmosphere that will encourage people to dream and do.
