All Show & No Go

I ask again, now that the South Carolina primary is in the history book:

Why is Mitt Romney running for president?

To this late date, the answer escapes me.

As, apparently, it is escaping his handlers.

Fellas, it has to be about more than this*:
Romney stages perfect events. For example, on the eve of the primary, Romney's rally in North Charleston was perfect from a production point of view: stage just right, big flags, big Romney signs, smooth introductions from South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, all topped off by a showy entrance by Romney, who arrived in his big campaign bus that drove right into the room.

It was perfect in every sense but engaging with the voters.
It has to be about more than pageant and process. Romney must have a reason for running for the highest office in the land.

Darned if I know what it is though.
