Many Canadians are predisposed to dislike Mitt Romney. He is a Republican, and robotic even by those standards. In this land of centre-left sensibilities, such party affiliation and corporate mien often rankle. But I would urge my Canadian compatriots to reconsider. Romney is running for a foreign office, not joining your curling team, and if he can unseat President Barack Obama, the Great White North will be greater for it.

Unless Romney's anodyne economic policies and milquetoast pronouncements are masking a robust agenda of true reform, he will mostly likely lower expectations of the office while managing America's decline. Even so, he beats the alternative.
