Joe Scarborough, the host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," wrote an Op-Ed in Politico last night called "The Problem With Mitt," where he sums it all up:

"And the lesson is clear: If we want to win the battle of ideas in the long term, we should be willing to face the fact that Mitt Romney is likely to lose -- and should, given that he's neither a true conservative nor a courageous moderate. He's just an ambitious man. Nothing wrong with that, except when you want to be president. Great leaders combine ambition and ideas and conviction."
