The Meaning of Mitt

Vanity Fair excerpts The Real Romney by Michael Kranish and Scott Helman, which is to published next week.

"If Romney is exceedingly comfortable around family and close friends, he's much less so around those he doesn't know well, drawing a boundary that's difficult to traverse. It's a strict social order -- us and them -- that has put co-workers, political aides, casual acquaintances, and others in his professional circles, even people who have worked with or known him for years, outside the bubble. As a result, he has numerous admirers but, by several accounts, not a long list of close pals... He has little patience for idle chatter or small talk, little interest in mingling at cocktail parties, at social functions, or even in the crowded hallway. He is not fed by, and does not crave, casual social interaction, often displaying little desire to know who people are and what makes them tick."

He sounds almost exactly as President Obama has been described.
