Setting Expectations With Jim And David

You can bet the last people Mitt Romney's campaign wants setting expectations for them are their buddies over at Obama for America headquarters in Chicago. But in a call with reporters this afternoon, that's just what campaign manager Jim Messina and top strategist David Axelrod tried to do.

Romney "has been leading these polls in New Hampshire by 30-some points. "He needs to hold that," Messina said, when asked what Romney needs to shoot for in next Tuesday's primary. "He's got to win by 30 points or so here to continue this momentum."
