Our take: Could Mitt Romney be the next John Kerry? William Kristol from The Weekly Standard questions Romney's commitment in a very winnable presidential race.

Remember Michael Dukakis (1988) and John Kerry (2004)? It's possible to lose a winnable presidential election to a vulnerable incumbent in the White House (or in the case of 1988, a sitting vice president). So, speaking of losing candidates from Massachusetts: Is it too much to ask Mitt Romney to get off autopilot and actually think about the race he's running?
