Other than being from Massachusetts and having more money than us plebeians could ever dream of, Mitt Romney and Sen. John Kerry (D) don’t look like they have anything in common. Still, Kerry will become Romney for President Barack Obama.
Sounds sort of kinky, right? It’s not.
Kerry, who ran for president himself and is an experienced debater from his campaigns and five terms in the US Senate, will play the role of Republican Mitt Romney in President Obama’s upcoming debate preparation sessions, The Boston Globe has learned.
In that capacity, the senator will be expected to not only provide Romney’s expected answers to debate questions, but foreshadow his attacks, mimic his speaking style, and model his posture so Obama feels comfortable against him during their three meetings this fall.
