Mitt, winning praise
: Of course, it’s too early to overly praise or rate Mitt’s performance. No need to repeat the local follies of Pete Carroll and Rick Pitino, two heroes who rode into town amid high hopes, only to crap out in the end. But Mitt does deserve some praise
for his early moves, especially his appointments yesterday
. They reveal a number of things: A.) He’s serious about restructuring government. B.) He’s going to be serious about cracking down on patronage
(at least in the early days) and C.) He’s not afraid to surround himself with intelligent people. As for him being effective, well, that’s an entirely different matter. We’ll begin to see in a few weeks.
