Money Can't Buy You Love

Dick DeVos learned last year that money still can't buy certain things—in particular, Michigan elections. Mitt Romney may be about to learn from his own experience what he apparently did not learn from Dick's.

Mike Huckabee, on the other hand, understands what money can't buy. At his appearance this morning at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel, he told the story of a Michigan woman who offered him a family heirloom to help support his campaign. "I can't tell you how much that meant to me," Huckabee said. "You can raise all the money in America, but you can't buy spirit like that."

Like I said earlier, I really wanted to like Mitt Romney—I tried to like him—but his inability to relate to ordinary Americans leaves me cold.
