In an unsigned editorial today the Wall Street Journal commends Mitt Romney on his transformation into an appealing candidate for Republicans and independent voters. It goes on to tick off what the "first-term goals" of a Romney presidency should be but expresses some skepticism:
On that note, our major question concerns Mr. Romney's political character. His history of ideological reinvention and Bay State governance suggests he might bend or concede too much. Our hope for a President Romney would be that he has come to recognize how profound our troubles are and what it will take to solve them.
