Romney's Next Challenge: Don't 'Win Himself to Death'
In the dark hours of World War II, surging German troops rode their grinding tanks across hundreds of miles of Russian territory, suffering precious loss of life and time with every mile gained. A division commander wrote of the importance of reducing losses "if we do not intend to win ourselves to death."
That admonition, revealed in the Max Hastings book Inferno, applies to presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney. Despite victories Tuesday night in Michigan and Arizona, twin killings that put him back on the glide path to the GOP presidential nomination, the former Massachusetts governor is winning himself to death.
