An article from the Boston Globe today sheds light on Mr. Romney’s governing prowess.  Here in Mr. Romney’s home state the level of administrative confusion in handling the GOP Presidential nominating caucus should be a wake up call for voters.  Although Mr. Romney won the public primary decisively he could not get his slate of delegates elected.  Apparently money does not buy everything. The Republican State Committee’s concerns demonstrates other problems. The procedures to check if you were a Republican at the caucus were faulty. Now this is the voter ID constituency and they failed miserably as any model to follow. Now they want to go in reverse by fiat. This raises questions if they fully understand how to run things. In contrast the Democratic Party ran a smooth caucus system knowing there were no renegades having been vetted by savvy Party activists. Further there is no provisional balloting. If you are not on the rolls as a registered Democrat you could not vote for any candidate. Also registration as a Party Member had to be as of February 15th. The caucuses are small enough and the time frames adequate enough to let those who showed up to have a reasonable idea who they were casting their votes for.  So Democrats in Massachusetts can be proud of its leadership under John Walsh.  It bodes well for the National Convention in September.
