Relaxed Romney Gets a Punch Line In
But don't count out Romney just yet.
At an event in Des Moines on caucus day, Romney seemed more relaxed, and less buttoned down, than usual. He even -- gasp -- made a funny joke.
Talking about the combativeness of the campaign, he noted that Huckabee's campaign chairman had said "he'd like to knock my teeth out."
"My only comment to that is..."
"...don't touch the hair."
The audience of employees at the Principal Financial Group laughed. So did the assembled press corps which has gotten used to the somewhat dry stump speech from the former CEO-turned-governor.
But coming this late, one has to wonder whether Romney might not be faced with such a severe challenge from the likable Huckabee if he had shown more of that humor earlier.
