Polls show Romney The Man just just isn’t connecting with voters. Has Obama defined him? An anti-Romney ad features a steelworker’s story of losing his wife to cancer right after a Bain restructuring cost him his job and his company medical insurance.

Romney accuses Obama of dismantling a Clinton-era achievement: welfare reform (no word on whether POTUS #42 sent Romney a fruit-basket for safeguarding the ol’ presidential legacy). Was Romney maybe trying to peel away moderates? Speaking of strategic thinking, what’s the calculus behind Romney’s VP pick?
